Get + Adjective
The days always get bright in the morning and get darker at night. And while seasons go, the weather changes, getting hotter and colder. That’s obvious but can you say it in Korean? That’s not obvious. then, let’s learn how to say something is getting + adjective in the Korean language.
Get + Adjective in Korean Language
‘get + adjective’ is also a conjugation in the Korean language. It’s not a surprise right? It’s ‘-지다’. You can use it in various situations like ‘it’s getting dark’, ‘I’m getting prettier’
지다 has a lot of meanings such as ‘lose’, ‘carry something on back’, etc. However, as always, when the word is a conjugation, other meanings become not important. In this case, it means ‘become’.
With 하다 words
Of course, this 지다 conjugation is natural only with adjectives. So, you can’t use it with verbs or nouns.
The conjugation seems very complicated if you start from the dictionary form. So, we will change the ditionary form to 해요 style. To do that, you have to remove the ending of the root word 다.
And add ‘지’ from 지다. and as a final touch 어요 for the ending and the speech style. If you don’t remember why 아 appeared in the middle. check the Word Type & Dictionary Form tutorial.
With 이다 words
이다 also has adjectives. However, you can’t use the 지다 conjugation for 이다 type of any words. That’s the core of this tutorial. Not every conjugation works with any type of words.
Korean language uses some conjugations for 하다 words, uses some conjugations for 이다 or sometimes uses some conjugations with the certain speech styles. Remember, not every conjugation works with any type of words.
It Got in Korean Language
Then how can we make the past form of this? Instead of ‘it’s getting darker’, What if we want to say ‘It got darker already? We just need to change the tense. But how?
Yes, tense is always put at the end just before the ending and speech style. Tense changes the last conjugation or the last verb. In this case 지다 is placed at the end. And what is the past tense key component? Yes, ㅆ. We just need to simply add ㅆ at 져요.
Now, let’s try to use the conjugation with the future tense. What should we do? That would be your homework for this tutorial. If you like this tutorial, please check our Patreon and join us and why don’t we just read one more, just one more tutorial?
