It's also very common to say "십 불" instead. At least if you're Korean in America.
Are the sino korean numbers used for dollars? I have no idea
For all money.
wonder when we gonna learn the Korean money instead of dollar
The Korean currency is 원 (won) and it is counted in increments of either hundreds or thousands; for example, 천원 (1000 won) is one US dollar. South Koreans only have equivalent one dollar bills, ten dollar bills, and fifty dollar bills.
Does the item (dollars in this case) come after the number because it's a Sino-Korean number, or because it's "dollars" specifically?
I think it's just because it's money. Won is the same way.
I'm having trouble with the difference between "dollar" and "different". I think it's the vowel in the second syllable that's getting me. When is it ㅓ and when is it ㅏ?
달러 = "dollar"
다르다 = "to be different"
