    I have a question about 하다 verbs. In the first example (전화 다 했어요), 다 separated the verb and basically came between the noun and 하다 but in the last one (더 공부하고 싶으면), 더 was before the whole verb 공부하다. So what’s the rule?

  • Lucy

    So can you actually put 다/다 before the noun ever, or does it just not make sense in grammar? Or does it just change the meaning of the sentence slightly?
