Today’s Nuts+Bolts of Korean looks at putting those Korean characters we’ve previously covered together into words
Each syllable of a Korean word follows a specific pattern of :
Consonant – Vowel – Consonant
(The last consonant can be removed and a syllable still meet the rules I.E. Consonant- Vowel)
The last consonant of the syllable is the Bat-chim.
Hangul is written in blocks rather than as a line. It is pretty intuitive how you would write the letters, and word processing software will do it automatically so we won’t cover it here at the moment.
When ㄹ is the Bat-chim it makes a sound like the english letter ‘L’
When ㅇis the Bat-chim it makes an -Ng sound.
