[GRAMMAR] 과 and 와

March 5, 2012

I had to make this post becuase I have been using 과 and 와 incorrectly. First off, 과 and 와 are added at the end of a noun to give the meaning of “and”.

Here is the rule:

If ends in consonant: NOUN + 과

If ends in vowel or ㄹ: NOUN + 와

In fact, I thought would be the opposite in order to make the sentence “flow” like other Korean words – but that’s not the case, apparently.

EXAMPLES

1) 간식 물…
Snacks and water…

2) 우유 쿠키…
Milk and cookies…
