"Yes, yes, yes"
Translation:예, 예, 예
While 예 is correct and it is technically more polite, I was under the impression that 네 was more common...
According to "Talk to me in Korean" 네 is technically more of a "I agree" than straight "yes". While widely used as yes, it's also used as "I see" or "correct". You can use it to agree with a negative inquiry, whereas in English, saying "yes" is generally to contradict the negative statement. "You don't like coffee?" "no, I don't" or "yes, I do" In Korean "네, (I don't like coffee)." Shows agreement with the statement.
Oh, now I understand why they say that in my drama. Thanks. Perhaps I can also figure out how they lie to someone and still blame them for their actions that are based on that lie.
Very useful. Which lesson did you find that on? I've been using these two:
Hope those help :-)
I'm using two apps at a time, the other one is lingodeer. I learnt 네 first before coming across 예 in that app
because L-|| (sorry i cant copy and paste korean) is the formal way,like "correct" Or "yes" But o=|| is like "yeah"
I barely hear anyone hear (sorry I don't have a Korean keyboard) saying 'E', 'Ne' is more common and you sometimes even say some ook say 'De', it's because the 'D' in 'N(d)e' is softly pronounced, while some Koreans put some power power in (mostly men)^^
Okay, for some reason my keyboard acts weird.. Oh well, you probably get what I mean!
LMFAO It gave me a word bank of "애 예 에 예 애 예 에" and I thought they were all 예 cause I wasn't paying attention. Anyway, I chose three at random really fast, got one of each, and got it right with "a typo in my answer". I'm over here crying lolll
네 would be yes. I believe 내 is possessive like mines or my. Like 내 친구 would be my friend.
It is actually one of those!! Im not sure which one though lol but im assuming that this is informal
Can someone explain the difference between ㅐ and ㅔ? They sound the same to me help TT
They sound the same to many Koreans these days, too.
They used to stand for different sounds (and still do, for some speakers), but for many speakers, they have merged into one, and Koreans have to learn which vowel to write in which word.
A bit like "ee" versus "ea" in English, as in "meet" versus "meat" -- they used to be different sounds (and still are, for a very few people), but now you just have to learn which words use which spelling.
I had the same question that you answered,thanks for the clear explanation!
In other source, yes is ne, it just sound like ye when it pronounce
Is there a remedial lesson on "yes"?
They are pronounced the same way by many Koreans, so you have to learn which spelling is used where.
A bit like "ee" and "ea" in English -- "meet" and "meat" are spelled differently but pronounced the same, and you just have to learn which word has which spelling.
(And as in English, the pronunciations used to be different, which is the reason for the different spellings.)
tecnically 애 is ae and 에 is e but over the years korean speakers have started to pronounce them the same
I am under the impression 예 is formal and 네 is informal. Which is more commonly used in Korea?
Yes. They sound the same to many Koreans today as well.
There used to be a difference (as with "meet" and "meat" in English), which explains the separate spellings, but nowadays they are mostly pronounced the same.
For a second i thought they were all the same and clicked 3 and submit, it just said i have a typo
Am i the only one doing this so that i can understans the bts livestreams
For me it's exo, but now I also want to learn Chinese (ZTao). Who cares why? It expands your brain!
Because thats the lower case yes for eg... yes=예 but Yes (uppercase) has double line inbitween the verticle lines
I suppose it's wrong since we're meant to write "ye" and not "e", like the course taught us to say "ye", that's why "ne" isnt an option either.
