Wrap up of Particles: Ways to Say ‘Together With’

This lesson of the book ‘Elementary Korean’  thought me how to say together with in different ways using some of the past particles that I have learned.  These words mean together 함께 (hamkke) and 같이 (kati) although the latter could also mean like. 

Before this, I have learned that 이랑/랑 (irang/rang), 하고 (hago) and 과/와 (gwa/wa) have the same use as particles. It means with although 하고 could also mean ‘and’.  Since these are particles, when are added in a noun, it forms part of the word as if one (single word).  Again as mentioned in my previous post, particles are pronounced without a pause when combined with another word.

For today, I have learened the various ways to say together with.  For the phrase ‘together with a friend’ below are the ways to say this:

  • 친구랑 함께  (chingurang hamkke)
  • 친구하고 함께 (chinguhago hamkke)
  • 친구과 함께 (chingugwa hamkke)
  • 친구랑 같이 (chingurang kati)
  • 친구하고 같이 (chinguhago kati)
  • 친구과 같이 (chingugwa kati)

So looking at it, these phrases actually have the same formula noun+particle for ‘with’ then hamkke or kati.

  1. It would actually be
    친구와함께 or 친구와같이
    과 and 와 have a weird grammar rule if the last letter of the syllable before you use the syllable for “and” is a vowel you use 와 but if it is a consonant you would use 과 hope I helped.
    And good luck with your Korean.
