공부할 거예요 (gongbuhal geyeyo)[Word of the Day]

안녕하세요!

Edit: This post has been updated. It previously stated that this verb stem was used to say that a person’s future action were determined by what someone else said, however, that’s incorrect. This verb stem is used to reflect actions regardless of what the other person says.

Alright, so we’re still focusing on the topic for the Grammar of the Week. Again, we see a familiar verb combined with the ending ~ㄹ 게예요.

공부할 거예요 (gongbuhal geyeyo) | “I will study”

In this instance, the verb indicates that the speaker will study because of what the other person said.

i.e.,

  • 시험은 아마 하드 될 수 없습니다. (siheom-eun ama hadeu doel su eobs-seubnida.) | “The test is probably not going to be hard.”
  • 아마. 밤에 공부할 거예요 있어. (ama.bam-e gongbuhal geoyeyo iss-eo.) | “Maybe. I will study tonight anyway.”

The second person, regardless of how the first person felt, is going to study regardless. In this example, we see that the first person’s feelings had no bearing on the second person’s decision to study.

We’ll do another one tomorrow before moving on.

See ya tomorrow!
