맞지 (matji) [Word of the Day]

안녕하세요!

Alright so I used this in a sentence during one of my WOTD posts as a random thought at the end of the sentence and I was asked to explain it. Not in the comments or anything but I did hear I should start explaining when I use “slang” or common words like the above. So today will be a fun post!

맞지 (matji) | “Right” [Think: “Amirite?” or “Am I right?”]

맞지 comes from the verb, “맞다” which means “to be correct; to be right”. It’s conjugated to a more commonly heard phrase, “맞아” or “맞아요”, meaning “That’s right!”

지 or 지지 is actually something I learned not to long ago. Basically, it’s used for shortening words like 맞아 or for emphasis.

So that’s it! Really short and to the point!
