I don't understand how 를 is pronounced? 비 is be and I thought 르 by itself would be reu why is there a ㄹ under the ㅡ?
So that the last syllable is lin rather than rin.
A letter rieul at the beginning of a syllable is usually pronounced r, one at the end of a syllable usually l.
If you have one at the end and another at the beginning of the next one, then the resulting sound is l.
Ok so the last ㄹ in 를 just connects with the first one in 린. It's really just for flow and syllable purposes. So the whole thing would most closely be pronounced as bae-reul-lin. Hope that helps!
also know as 'palatization', it's how the sounds change based on placement to help the word blend better. in beckout's example, its why 받짐 is read as 'batchim' and not 'bad jim'
This is why I got "Korean from zero" they go into details about grammar lije the r/l, k/g, s/t situation.
Can anyone tell me how reliable the audios on here are? My hangul table tells me the '_' vowel sounds like the 'e' in the French word 'petite' which is an 'ö' like sound to me. But whenever I hear it pronounced here it sounds like an 'i'? Therefore 'Berlin' sounds like 'Perillin' to me not like 'Peröllin' ... I'm a little confused
I can't help with the vowel, but as for why the B-sound sounds like a P-sound, those two consonants are the same, but voiced and unvoiced respectively (meaning you engage your vocal cords on B, but not P, even though your mouth makes the same movements). For proof, try whispering "bat" and "pat" to yourself. Your mouth moves the same way, and the whispered words sound the same.
