Test Your Korean – Level 4 Dialogue in 100% Korean
In Level 4 Lesson 16, we looked at the basic spacing rules when it comes to writing in Korean. We learned that independent words are written separately with a space between them, but there is no space between a noun, or a pronoun, and a marker. We also learned that certain words are used together so often that they are used and considered as just one independent word. In this lesson, let us take a look at more words that, over time, formed new meanings and are now being used as independent words. These words generally have different meanings from the combination of the original meanings of the combined words.
1. 돌려 주다 Vs. 돌려주다
돌리다 = to turn; to revolve
돌려 주다 = to turn something for someone
돌려주다 = to return something; to give something back
2. 돌아 가다 Vs. 돌아가다
돌다 = to turn; to turn around
돌아 가다 = to detour; to go around the long way
돌아가다 = to return; to go back to some place
3. 빌려 주다 Vs. 빌려주다
빌리다 = to borrow
빌려 주다 = to borrow something (from someone else) for someone
빌려주다 = to lend something to someone
알다 = to know
보다 = to see
알아보다 = to recognize something/someone; to look into something
“알아 보다” doesn’t exist.
나다 = to be born; to get out; to be out of (not commonly used on its own)
오다 = to come
가다 = to go
나오다 = to come outside
*You never put a space between 나 and 오다 because 나 doesn’t have much of an independent meaning.

오다 = to come
가다 = to go
