  • Win

    Hi, I have a question!

    If the part that is quoted has a tense, do I conjugate the verb and then add the 다고? For example, if i want to say “she said that she will eat”, do I say 먹을 거이다고 말했어요”? Because if i just write 먹는다고 말했어요 then it wouldn’t be clear whether “she said that she ATE, or she IS EATING, or WILL EAT, or whatever tense the “eating” verb is… right? Anyone knows?

    11. TTMIK이 재미있다는 이야기를 들었어요.
    [TTMIK-i jae-mi-it-da-neun i-ya-gi-reul deu-reo-sseo-yo.]
    = I heard (a story that) someone (was) saying that TTMIK is fun.
    12. 저도 간다는 메시지를 남겼어요.
    [ jeo-do gan-da-neun me-si-ji-reul nam-gyeo-sseo-yo.]
    = I left a message saying that that I would go too.
    13. 한국어를 공부한다는 내용이에요.
    [han-gu-geo-reul gong-bu-han-da-neun nae-yong-i-e-yo.]
    = It’s a story/content that (someone) is studying Korean.
    14. 경은 씨가 제주도에 간다는 이야기를 들었어요.

    = I heard (a story that) someone (was) saying that Gyeong-eun was going to Jeju Island.
    15. 지금 간다는 사람이 없어요.
    [ ji-geum gan-da-neun sa-ra-mi eop-seo-yo.]
    = There is no one that says that they will go.

    Can someone please explain this part to me, it is making my head spin. Also I found out that 다는 has a lot more uses. ㅠ-ㅠ

    • 저도 알고 싶어요 ㅠㅠ

    • Alvina Lin

      I think ” V+ㄴ/는 다는 ” is like an adj. which describe the noun after it.
      Just like the sample sentences
      the original sentence will be “저도 메시지를 남겼어요.” I left a message as well
      then you add the “that i would go” 간다는 part to describe the message
      it became “저도( 간다는 )메시지를 남겼어요”

      i hope this helped you!

    [2] 사랑한다. 사랑한다고! = I love you. (I said) I love you!

    What’s the difference between:
    (given example) He says that he will come tomorrow.
    그 사람이 내일 온다고 해요.
    (given example) He said he would come again tomorrow.
    그 사람은 내일 다시 올 거라고 했어요.
    (I know one is in past-tense, etc. but it’s the use of either 다고 or 라고)
