Word builder 6 / 문(文)

Welcome to another lesson in the Word Builder series. In the Word Builder lessons, we introduce letters and words that work as building blocks of the Korean vocabulary. They are not necessarily all Hanja words based on Chinese characters, but many of them are.

Did you know that by learning just one Korean syllable/Hanja character, you can easily learn at least 10 other related words? Let’s look at a word right now so you can expand your vocabulary!


Today’s keyword is 문.

The Chinese character for this is 文.

The word 문 is related to “writing” or “letter.”


Sample Expressions

문 (writing) + 화 (to become) = 문화文化 = culture

Ex) 한국 문화 = Korean culture


문 (writing) + 서 (writing) = 문서文書 = document; papers

Ex) 새 문서 = new document


문 (writing) + 장 (writing) = 문장文章 = sentence

Ex) 한국어 문장 = Korean sentence


문 (writing) + 자 (letter) = 문자文字 = letter; character

Ex) 고대 문자 = ancient character


문 (writing) + 학 (to learn) = 문학文學 = literature

Ex) 영국 문학 = English literature


문 (writing) + 법 (law) = 문법文法 = grammar 

Ex) 문법 공부하는 거 싫어해요. = I hate studying grammar.


주 (to pour) + 문 (writing) = 주문注文 = order

Ex) 주문 번호 = order number


논 (to discuss) + 문 (writing) = 논문論文 = thesis; research paper

Ex) 논문 제출했어요? = Have you submitted your thesis?


문 (writing) + 화 (to become) + 재 (property) = 문화재文化財 = cultural assets; cultural properties
