[Word of the Day] 춥다 (chup-da) + 을까요

안녕하세요!

You’re not seeing things, I am using a word that you have definitely seen posted here before. However, I’m using it in context to the Grammar of the Week. Even if you don’t follow the Grammar of the Week, you can definitely benefit from this post as well. Today’s example is talking to yourself. Sounds odd right? Well, it’ll make sense after you see it.

Today’s example is talking to yourself. Sounds odd right? Well, it’ll make sense after you see it.

The situation:

“You’re going out tomorrow but you’re not entirely sure what to wear because you’re not sure of the weather. So you ask… (introspectively).”

  • 내일 춥 을까요? (naeil chub eulkkayo?) | “I wonder if it will cold tomorrow?” 

Quick Note:

I’ll be honest, I struggled with this post a bit because I wasn’t sure which “cold” to use and so I took the safe route and just went with the verb, “to be cold”. You may have seen other ways to say “cold”, such as 추위 or 추운, these are descriptive verbs and adjectives. Sentence structure matters when using these two words.

i.e.,

  • 추위 | descriptive verb
    • noun must com before
      • ie .e., “The dog is cold.”
  • 추운 | adjective
    • noun must come after
      • i.e., “Cold car”

Alright so that’s it for today!
