Let’s learn how to conjugate Korean verbs.
* There are some Korean dictionary form of verbs.
가 다 [ga-da] : to go
먹 다 [meok-da] : to eat
하 다 [ha-da] : to do
‘-아/어요’ is the verbal and adjectical conjugation for the informal polite style sentence ending. There are three variants.
1. If the final vowel of a verb or an adjective stem is ‘ㅏ[a]’ or ‘ㅗ[o]’, ‘-아요[a-yo]’ is added.
2. If the final vowel of a verb or an adjective stem is a vowel other than ‘ㅏ[a]’ or ‘ㅗ[o]’, ‘-어요[eo-yo]’ is added.
3. If a verb or an adjective ends with ‘-하다[ha-da]’, then ‘하다[ha-da]’ is changed to ‘-해요[hae-yo]’.
