Snacks and beverages
Day 2 : Drinko Drinko
Do you guys enjoy any beverages? For me, a cup of coffee is something I always need at morning. My brain is just dead until caffeine comes in. Well… I’m not sure if it’s sugar rush or caffeine though. lol. Anyway, Today Korean lesson is about beverages.
음료수 means cold beverage such as soda or juice or any drink with no alcohol (not tea or coffee or milk) but mostly it means soda. sometimes you can see ‘음료’ instead of 음료수. it’s a same meaning.
음 is a same word to 음 in 음식 (food), 수 means water
Korean doesn’t have a word for juice so they use an English word for it. pronunciation is quite different but Koreans would understand if you say juice in English. 스 has an accent and is pronounced as 쓰.
커피 is the word shows the big difference between Korean and other many languages. Koreans pronounce p instead of f in coffee because they don’t have ‘f’.
차 doesn’t mean only black or green tea. Koreans think that tea can be made of many things such as any leaf, root, fruits. And putting some sugar in your tea can be shocking to East Asians. Especially with green tea. lol. I don’t know… it seems wrong lol… I was shocked a bit.
well… 마시다 is drink. funny thing is 마시다 also implies ‘drink alcohol’ just like many languages do. I really wonder how many alcohol lovers participated to make a language all over the world.
