잡다 / 잡히다 [Word of the Day]

안녕하세요!

To end this week, I wanted to talk about passive voice using one of the verb stem endings I told you about before. This isn’t exactly the easiest thing in the world, but it won’t confuse you terribly either. We’ll talk about this more next week but I just wanted to get you familiar with it first before we begin. I figure that’ll make the topic easier.

잡다 (jabda) | “to catch”

If you notice, this verb is not a -하다 verb but we do know that it’s a verb because it ends in -다. To make this passive, or change to passive voice, we must conjugate the ending to be 히다.

  • 잡히다 (jabhida) | “to get caught”/”to be caught”

But how do we know which one to use?

Find out during the Grammar of the Week next week with more examples throughout the week!
