9월 30일 🇰🇷 한국어.

Last night, I studied two lessons on level 6 which were 가장 ~중의 하나 to say “one of the most…” which is kinda easy to remember as well as the second lesson which was ~도 돼요?, ~도 괜찮아요?, ~도 될까요? for “do you mind if I…” and so ~아/어/여 주실래요? meaning “do you mind if you…” but since there are so many to remember things can get messy in my head 🙈🙈 I also have been very unproductive reviewing my Quizlet decks to study vocab. Yesterday, before having dinner, I practiced some of them but I still forget to do them every day. I hope I can adapt.

Have a radiant 수요일! 🌻🌻

Spent the day finishing off dramas, looking up research and starting my homework. One way that I study is by watching lectures with korean subs then making list of words that come up I don’t know. The video is from my research ethics class. The videos are only around 25 -30 minutes long and the class isn’t too difficult so I can mostly follow allow without having to look up too many words. My list usually end up around 20 words a week. My other classes are also slowly getting a bit more easy to understand I feel like I’m not completely lost. I still can’t get all the details and things, but if I prepare well before class the materials we will go over I can keep up. Since debate topics and presentations are all due Sunday, I read over all my classmate’s work and prepare the opinions and comments I want to make Monday so it usually makes class go by smoothly. we order delivery food all together as a class and eat during our lunch hour together and I get along well with everyone so it makes the environment less anxious. The only time I’ve gotten completely stressed is when I have to present readings because I need to read through pages of korean in class. I read extremely slow and mispronounced so many things. I was extremely embarrassed because my teacher stopped me to finish after 4 long pages but she and the rest of the class told me I did really well and she could tell how overwhelmed I was. It’s something I want to work on. During the semester all I can do is set very simple goals because I don’t have time for much. Still thinking about what I want to accomplish for October. Going to do some Chinese tonight and rest.

Phew its been a while since I’ve shared. I actually kinda a mishap with my emails but finally I got it back.

So, just wanted to share to anyone who may be reading this ^^. I’m finally done with my degree~~~

And to top it all off, I accepted a Master’s scholarship from my university, and also a part time position to be an engineering consultant for the university. I’m very grateful to the moon and back. I am really determined to work hard and get my Master’s and be a working engineer. I’m praying for strength and keeping my discipline.

Wish me luck🥺

Today we’re going to learn how to say “A is similar to B” and “A is the same as B”. Lesson 8 is focused on the usage with nouns and lesson 9 is focused on the usage with verbs. 

Lesson 8

To say A is similar to B, you need to us -(이)랑 or -하고. Both of these have been explained in level 2 lesson 4

  • 비슷하다 = to be similar
  • A noun + B Noun + -(이)랑 or -하고 + 비슷하다 = A is similar to B 
  • -(이)랑 is more formal than -하고 

Examples:

  • A랑 비슷해요 = it’s similar to A
  • B하고 비슷해요 = it’s similar to B
  • 도쿄는 서울이랑 비슷해요 = is Tokyo similar to Seoul?
  • 도쿄는 서울하고 비슷해요 = is Tokyo similar to Seoul?

To say A is the same as B, you need to us -(이)랑 or -하고 as well.

  • 같다 = to be the same
  • A noun + -(이)랑 or -하고 + B Noun + 같다 = A is the same as B

Examples:

  • A랑 같아요 = it’s the same as A
  • A하고 B는 같아요 = A and B are the same

If you use 같다 without the -(이)랑 or -하고, it has a different meaning

  1. to be like
  2. to look like
  3. to seem to be

Examples:

  • 거짓말 샅아요 = it seems to be a lie
  • 로봇 같아요 = it looks like a robot

Lesson 9

You could also use 같다 with verbs (so without the -(이)랑 or -하고). In order to do so, you need to change the verbs into nouns. This has been explained in level 2 lesson 19. 

Making verbs into nouns:

  • Present tense: verb stem + 는 것
  • Past tense: verb stem + (으)ㄴ 것
  • Future tense: verb stem + (으)ㄹ 것

Now after this it’s pretty easy again, just add the 같다 like you did with the nouns in lesson 8! 

Examples:

  • 눈이 오다 = to snow (active verb)
  • Present: 눈이 오는 것 같아요 = I think it is snowing
  • Past: 눈이 온 것 같아요 = I think it was snowing
  • Future: 눈이 올 것 같아요 = I think it will snow
  • Keep in mind, the 같아요 does not change according to the tense! The tense is shown with the turning verbs into nouns! 
  • 이상하다 = to be strange (descriptive verb)
  • 이상한 것 샅아요 = I think it is strange

Like other Sami languages, Southern Sami has the umlaut feature, which means that the vowel in the second syllable can change depending on the ending attached and the first vowel will likewise alternate.

Nouns have no gender, two numbers (singular and plural), and eight cases (nominative, genitive, accusative, illative, inessive, elative, comitative, and essive). The essive case has no plural form.

Personal pronouns have three numbers: singular, plural, and dual.

Verbs are conjugated for tense, mood (indicative and imperative), person, and number. They also have three numbers, like personal pronouns.

Dialects

There are two dialects: Northern and Southern. Differences between them are very small and mainly phonological.

So DeepL apparently drops German Umlaute (ä, ü, ö) sometimes, probably because it got its data from translations done by someone who didn’t have a German keyboard and was too lazy to copy in the Umlaute and/or thought that a, u and o are the same as ä, ü and ö; excuse me while I just
