하고, (이)랑, 과 / 와 (Nouns + “and”) informal/formal usage| [Grammar of the Week]

안녕하세요!

As much fun as I had doing those videos, I knew it was time to get back to the grammar lessons. I’ll probably be having a hard time keeping this up after this weekend since I’ll be in graduate school soon. However, I’m going to do my best to stay on top of this.

Also! Mark your calendars for September 7, 2017! If you haven’t heard already, duolingo will be releasing the Korean version on that date so make sure you download it when it’s available!

Let’s get started!

To keep in sync with the topic of “and” I decided to kind of return to this but also add to it as well. This lesson will be different than what you remember here before and we’re going to take each one at a time for the next three weeks because the distinctions are important.

하고, (이)랑, 과 / 와 are all particles and must be added to the end of a noun to connect it to another noun.

“And”

  • 하고 | conversational
  • (이)랑 | conversational
  • 과 / 와 | writing or formal speech

For now, we will be looking at 하고.  This is probably the one you will use more frequently when you’re talking to others, however, you still should be aware of the other ways to say “and”.

  • 하고 | conversational
    • i.e.,
      • 펜 하고 종이 | “pen and paper”

Examples for the rest of the week!
