운전하다 ‎(unjeonhada) [Word of the Day]

안녕하세요!

운전하다 ‎(unjeonhada) | “to drive”

Today’s word is another familiar word that we’re going to change to a future tense verb. Remember, this verb stem that we’re going to use is used when your decision is reflective of what the other person said.

i.e.,

  • 너 버스를 타고 할 수 있어. (neo beoseuleul tago hal su iss-eo.) | You can ride the bus.
  • 아니, 내 생각 운전할 게요. (ani, nae saeng-gag unjeonhal geyo.) | No, I think I’ll drive.

So here, the first person offered the suggestion for person #2 to ride the bus, instead, person #2 decided to drive. We don’t know if that was always person #2’s intention, but we do know that person #1 did have some influence on that decision.

Okay, so that’s it for this week. Next week is a new topic with new examples!
