    How do you tell the difference between rice and food when your asking someone for it?

    • dannyR

      Generic ‘food’ in Korean is 음식 ǔmshik. (‘houshik’ dessert)
      Rice, ‘bap’, means rice, of course, but further it means a meal: breakfast, lunch, dinner. Because rice is such a universal staple in Asia, it’s almost synonymous with ‘meal’. It’s like an old English expression ‘break bread’ = ‘have dinner/lunch/whatever’.

  • Asta Diabaté

    밥 주세요!
    물 주세요.

    I have learned that you dont use the particles ,,를´´ and ,,을´´ in a sentence with 있다. They teached me to use 가,이…

    • Kenny Lau

      That is correct, because literally 있다 just means to exist.

      When I say “(저는) 밥이 있어요” to say “I have rice”, I literally mean “as for me, rice exists”.

      That is why you can’t use the object marking particles 을/를 with the verb 있다.

    A : 사탕 주세요! (Please give me candy!)
    B : 음, 싫어요. (Um, I don’t want to.)
    A : 흑흑… (*crying*)

      아니요. 물 없어요

  • Ai-mee Ding

    Can someone please explain when “s” is pronounced as “sh”? like for example I know when you say 시 is would be pronounced as “shi” not “si” but when else is it pronounced as “sh”?

    • Seokjin Jin

      ㅅ sounds like “s” as in “slow” or “sh” in “sheep”.
      Depending on the following vowel, ㅅ sometimes sounds like “s” or “sh” in English. However, it is generally said with less airflow than the English “s”.

    • Gail

      ‘S’ is pronounced as ‘sh’ only when it is followed by the vowel ‘i’. When it’s followed by any other vowel it is pronounced as ‘s’
      prince: se-ja 세자
      lion: sa-ja 사자
      scissors: shi-ja 시자
      Only when ㅅ is followed by ㅣ is it pronounced ‘sh’

    • Ai-mee Ding

      oh that makes a lot of sense thank you!
