그리고 AND 고 pt. 2 (Connecting Sentences) | Grammar of the Week

안녕하세요!

Alright so last week we focused on 그리고. And just as a quick refresher:

그리고 | “and then”/ “and”

  • used to connect two streams of thought
  • placed at the beginning of the second sentence

Today we are going to be looking at -고. Even though this isn’t a new topic here, today is all about clarification, correcting, and adding to anything that I may have missed when I first talked about using this to connect sentences.

Let’s get started!

-고

  • attached to the end of a verb or adjective
  • combines two thoughts into one sentence

i.e.,

  • 음악을 듣고 잡지를 읽었다. (eum-ag-eul deudgo jabjileul ilg-eossda.) | I listened to music and read a magazine.

So you can see this is different than how we would’ve phrased this last week using 그리고, which would’ve come before “read a magazine.” But are technically correct, however we want to combine the two thoughts into one sentence.

So this week we will continue to look at various examples on how we can create a sentence using -고.
