So today’s word is one I just heard recently. I know another way to say this word so this one wasn’t exactly a way I was familiar with. This is also one I wasn’t sure exactly how to explain it so I decided to break it down to make it easier.
매일해 (maeilhae) | “every year”
Typically, I would just say “매년 (maenyeon)”. 년 (nyeon) means “year”. Ok now that that’s out of the way!
매일 (maeil) means “every day”. 매 (mae) means “each; every” and 일 (il) means “day”. 해 (hae) has a few meanings but one of those meanings just so happens to be “year”. So when we combine the two, “매일해 (maeilhae)”, it becomes every year.
**But I’ve also been told that 매해 (maehae) can also mean “every year” or “yearly”. Not sure on that one just yet. (and if anyone of you out there can verify this in the comments I’ll update this post!)
Alright so that’s it for today! I for one think I’ll stick with what I know on this one and that’s 매년 (mae-nyeon).
