"남자는 인기가 없습니다."
Translation:A man is unpopular.
Why do you say that? Nothing indicates thr use of a definite article as opposed to an indefinite article
Korean doesn't have articles, so no, there is nothing to indicate a or the
Lack of articles does not mean lack of definite/indefinite noun phrases.
Yes, the phrase can be definite or indefinite, but no, there is nothing indicating which one it is without context. So you'll need the broader context to tell.
The English translation is just something that would almost never be said in English.
No need for the "poor" comment. These guys worked in their free time to develop this for us.
Yes, "the" please. "a" sounds awkward here.
Yeah but they did it pretty bad bcs 1.they acctually needed to teach us what 'hello , how are you?, my name is...' means 2.The robot audio is PRETTY bad and 3.They make typo's or sometimes teach is wrong things. What i mean is..., they could do it better.
Are there actually anything that indicate "the" vs "a"? Or is that just assumed?
Lol I knew the answer but wrote "man's not hot" anyway and of course, got it wrong
For both "the man is popular" and "the man is unpopular" 이기가 없습니다 is used. How do you know when it is refering negatively, "UNpopular" versus positively "popular"? I cant find a difference
없습니다 is used for UNpopular. 있습니다 would be used for "the man is popular".
So does 인기가 by itself translate to "popular," because the verb is in the negative form?
Yes. 인기가 generally means popularity. 업습니다 is the negative form of 있습니다 which means "to be" and is used to describe what something is. Hope that helps. (Also, sorry if I misspelled something)
인기가 + 없습니다 Unpopular + to not be
Doesnt "Not to be" negate "unpopular" and thus make the man "popular?" I am confused as to why there is eobs and not iss
인기 doesn't mean unpopular, it means popularity, so 인기 있다 = to have popularity / to be popular, and 인기 없다 = to not have popularity / to be unpopular.
Why 'The man is not popular' is wrong? Is there different words for not popular and unpopular??
Why is "The man doesn't have popularity" wrong?
How do you know when the verb means existence or possesion?
