    Wow saying the numbers out loud is kinda hard. Was wondering why the number 6 change from yuk to nyuk.

    Thanks.

    • When ㄱ, ㅂ are followed by ㄹ, the sound is changed to ㄴ and ㅂ sound followed by ㄴ sound is changed to ㅁ sound.

      Therefore the pronounciation of 16 becomes [심뉵 sim-nyuk].

    • 알겠어요. 그리고 이 비디오에 계산하기는 끝날때까지 엄청 많아요. 읽기는 빨라져요 보인다~~~ ㅋㅋㅋ

      Even though, its pronounciation changes, it is still written as 십육, right?

    • Yes. In written Korean, it will still be written as 십육.

    Is it recommended to use 십팔? Or better use 열여덟 instead to avoid misunderstandings with a swear word?

    • Don’t worry too much about it. I also use the former word a lot in daily conversation not for swear word.

      I think the important thing is the accent/intonation. When you count money, please say 십팔 만원, but 열여덟 만원.
