  • noor demi

    question, does 그리고 has the same possibility of changing verbs between phrases like – 고? or is this just a rule for the usage of – 고??

    • 우유

      do you mean changing the tenses? no, it doesn’t. 그리고 is just a connector word like “and”, whereas -고 connects TO a verb which is why it changes it. it’s for ease of pronunciation

    오늘 일하고 티셔츠를 사고 밥을 먹었어요

    Pff, only knowing if it’s past/future at the last word is going to be very challenging. Clearly it’s very important to understand Korean well so that you get such things from the context.

    • Kenneth

      My friend, 듣다 is an irregular verb. The final ㄷ in the verb stem is replaced by ㄹ. Since the last vowel is not 아 or 오 it takes the 어요 form. This conjugates the infinitive form 듣다 to the present form of 들어요.

      I’m not sure, someone please correct me, but I think this would conjugate to the future tense as 들을거예요.
