    Hey megan, I have been a subscriber for around 3yrs now and I was wondering in all my time studying korean in the last 3yrs the only things that stuck are words that i heard in english then heard in korean later. But honestly in all my time trying to study I am a hearing listening learner so only the stuff i heard that way is still in my head years later the rest just flew off into god knows where but i dont know it anymore lol.. I want to learn a lot of the vocabulary as I know hangul and basic phrases already but want to get to conversing and understanding better which only comes from immersion and vocabulary lots of vocabulary. So I need audio english to korean vocabulary. Like an audio tape but I cant for the life of me find some place that has vocabulary spoken out loud in english then again in korean. I know you have to work on vocabulary to learn and I want too very badly. but cant find it. Do you?...or does anyone else know of any place to find something like this? I know its specific but for people like me who are not visual learners but sound learners I really hope something like this is out there. Everything seems to be read the english on the screen and hear the korean word. But that is visual and sound learning so then i remember the korean word but have no clue what the heck its for so i never use it then eventually forget i know it because it isnt important knowledge. ANyway sorry for the speel and I hope That it made sense thanks so much to anyone who can help :)

    I feel like 시원하다 could be somehow translated to: refreshing.
    maybe XD

  • ilariathearistocratic

    I don't claim to be Noam Chomsky, but I studied a bit of linguistics, and from what I remember Korean is an agglutinative language. It means that morphemes stick to each other and each component of meaning is represented by its own morpheme.

    For example, "시원하다" comes from the union of an adjective (시원한) and a verb (하다).
    English is not agglutinative, that's why you say "I feel relieved".
    Maybe somebody who studied linguistics more than me can give a clear example.

    In my family, we say "bub!" for I don't know, in one short quick syllable.
    Like, "Jeanne, where are my shoes?"
    "Bub!" (with a simultaneous shrug for good measure. lol)

  • The Korean Manual

    I agree with you on all of them! Also the word "역시" is weird to translate into English ("as expected" doesn't really feel right) and like some people said before "답답하다" too :)

    A lot of asian languages are based on sensations, perceptions. So one word is enough to get the full meaning : Oooh tall ! Ooooh cheap ! So that's why some words have very elaborate meanings.

    If english had words for the opposite of somethings then the language wouldnt be that easy. Its much easier to just add more words that already are easy to change the meaning of something. Can you imagine having to learn a new word just to say you dont know? Thats just too much in my opinion.

    I think this might have to do with how the language is built. English uses the Latin-based alphabet, vs Korean Hangul, which is a Featural linear alphabet...

  • imjustaregularasshole
    imjustaregularasshole 5 months ago

    Fair warning: I'm about to use the F word excessively. Please don't flag me I'm just making a point lmao 😁

    Consider this: Yes, those words are convenient and English could stand to be simplified, however, let's not forget about the amazing thing that is the word "Fuck".

    Yes, it can be perceived as aggressive and crude but have you ever actually thought about how many parts of speech it can be used in?

    "Fuck you."
    "The fuck."
    "I'm fucking trying."
    "I don't fucking know."
    "Wanna fuck?"
    "Are you fucking with me?"
    "Fucking hell."
    "God fucking damnit."
    "That fucking thing."
    "Right fucking there."
    "Conceited fuck."
    "Cranberry fuck balls."

    The possibilities are endless and I really like words that are fluid like that. It can be an adjective, noun, verb, etc. It's so versatile and I get a lot of people think it's crass but personally, I fucking love the fucking shit out of the fucking word fuck. 😂
