Translation:It is awesome!
Isnt this word also considered as an acceptable way of saying something/someone is beautifull?
I think yes. I saw people using it for every kind of thing, from people till objects, with the meaning of "beautiful", "cool", "fresh" and others.
Does the ㅅ in 멋 make an 's' sound or a 't' sound? I read on a different thread here that if it comes at the end, it makes a different sound.
It's called batchim. When ㅅ is a batchim, it has a T sound. However, if the next syllable starts with a vowel, it keeps its S sound
It will normally make a 't' sound however in this cause the ㅅ in 멋 is carried over to the next piece which is 있 so it will make the 's' sound so it kind of would mean the ㅇ in 있 would be replaced by the ㅅ and would be read as 멋싰습니다 however would still be written as 멋있습니다. This is how my Korean language teacher taught us.
This can be either pronounced [머디…] or [머시…]. The former is more “correct.” The latter is most common. And the dictionary indicates both as acceptable. Of course, this is also due to speakers reanalyzing the word as one unit rather than as 멋+있다.

So does 맛있습니다 mean Delicious? I know that 멋있습니다 awesome, but im confused about the difference betweeen meot and mat
맛 means taste and 있습니다 (있다) means to exist, that something or someone is there. the korean word 맛있습니다 literally translates to “there is taste“.
a thing to remember the difference by I came up for myself: 맛 = delicious. potato mash is delicious 멋 = cool. moshing is cool
I hovered my mouse over the word because that tells me the translation of the word and it told me that the word meant either "is cool" or "it is cool" and so I put "is cool" and it counted it wrong and told me the answer is "so cool" and here it is saying "it is awesome"??? Can someone explain please?
Yes, you can!
If my studies have served me well enough "멋있어요" would be a less formal way of speaking/writing the same phrase, while "멋있습니다" would be considered more formal; but "멋있어요"/"멋있습니다" should both be acceptable =)
Hope this helps!
Ah, you're thinking of "맛있습니다", which definitely looks very similar to "멋있습니다".
But this sentence is using the latter (still trips me sometimes too lol)
All i answered was Cool and it counted it as right. I know that it has a verb in there, so why would it just allow cool to be an answer?
why is my answer "it is cool" not accepted thats what it suggests when i hover over the word
I get the sentences correct but I dont know why I get it correct because I dont know the characters. I just guess. It says it really fast too so I cant really hear each sound. I will just keep going.
Are there any other ways to say awesome, cool, etc. and are they used in certain situations?
I'm literally choosing the correct option and it is grading my answer as wrong. But then, I saw a difference of an exclamation mark, then I was like, "Cool." But then I looked for an option w/ an '!', and guess what? iT wAsN'T eVEn ThERe.
