Every time I open my Continuing Korean book, I always end up reading the lesson on modifiers. I wonder if I would be able to move forward from this lesson. It looks really easy from the beginning and gets difficult as you build your sentence.
I just reviewed how to turn verbs into a modifier form. It really is so simple, just add ㄴ to the base of a verb ending in vowel or 은 if the verb ends in consonant. Here are some examples:
This simple verb in modifier forms has two meanings.
- With a descriptive verb, it means the noun that is –> 좋은 아침 (choeun achim) good morning or a morning that is good.
- With a processive verb, it has a past meaning –> 만난 사람 (mannan saram) the person that (i) met.
