Hangul Irregularities

August 18, 2011

I decided to make a post dedicated to hangul irregularities. I’m sorry if it is a little hard to read =-=;;; I’m not sure how to simplify it ~!

1. When ‘ㅌ’ is followed by ‘ㅇ’: ㅌ+ㅇ= ㅊ
ex) 같이 → 가치

*note that this only applies to certain sounds, such as when you have ‘이’ after the ㅌ

2. When  ‘ㄹ’  is followed by ‘ㄴ’: ㄴ = ㄹ
ex) 칼날 → 칼랄

3. When ‘ㄱ’ is followed by ‘ㄴ’:  ㄱ = ㅇ
ex) 작년 → 장년

4. When ‘ㄴ’ is followed by ‘ㄹ’:  ㄴ = ㄹ
ex) 원리 → 월리

5. When ‘ㄱ’ is followed by ‘ㄹ’:  ㄱ = ㅇ  &  ㄹ = ㄴ
ex) 독립 → 동닙

6. When ‘ㅂ’ is followed by ‘ㄴ’:  ㅂ = ㅁ  &  ㄴ = ㅁ
ex) 갑니다 → 감미다

7. When ‘ㅂ’ is followed by ‘ㄹ’:  ㅂ = ㅁ  &  ㄹ = ㄴ
ex)압력 → 암녁

8. When ‘ㅁ’ is followed by  ‘ㄹ’:  ㄹ = ㄴ
ex) 심리 → 심니

9. When ‘ㅆ’ is followed by ‘ㄴ’: ㅆ = ㄴ
ex) 있는 → 인는

If there is anyone who needs a hangul guide, please let me know!! I would be happy to make a post teaching hangul, whether that’s a video or simple text.

    ahh~ nice post! But it’s a little misleading if you say 1. When ‘ㅌ’ is followed by ‘ㅇ’: ㅌ+ㅇ= ㅊ ^^ Cos words like 같은 is is pronounced as [가튼] ^^

      Ahhhh! You’re totally right 😀

      I’ll be sure to add that it only applies to certain words in sounds such as ‘이; ^^;;;
