Translation:A singer is not fun.
I am wondering if the translation is correct. I taught english in Korea and students would often think that something that is "fun" is funny, which i believe is incorrect. When something is funny, doesnt it mean that it makes you laugh?
Could be the way the verb "funny" was created from the nominal stem "fun". You should have a look at the hanja roots for these to find out. I've found that with Korean once I stopped equating their grammar rules with English, it made the language easier.
This is a common mistake for English language learners. In many languages, fun and funny are the same word. I don't know about in Korean.
Well, both Korean and Japanese language have their roots in Chinese, so you'll find a lot of words are similar!
No, they don't. Korean is a language isolate. It has just borrowed a lot of words from Chinese. Japanese is also a member of a completely separate langauge family. There is borrowing between the three languages (largely due to Chinese and Japanese imperialism and the close proximity of the countries), but none of those three languages share common roots. Neither Japanese nor Korean come from Chinese.
Korean students (I mean Korean kids learning English) confuse fun and funny all the time. Maybe there's less of a difference in Korean
The dictionary hints say "boring." "Boring" and "not fun" are not the same.
Why did I get this to translate (without a yellow marking) even though I have not learned this yet?
Please explain what symbols represent the verb "is" and the adjective "boring"? Thank you.
Is there a difference between boring, not interesting and not fun - in Korea?
Every sentence with the singer is negative. I thought it was funny at first, but this reinforces a stigma that professional singers are boring and bad. This reinforces children to think Opera or classical singing is bad and has a very negative impact on my career, as I am a vocal performance graduate. If this is not fixed soon, I will stop recommending the app, leave a 1 star review, and send a letter to the company. Please change this.
I hardly think that singers are an oppressed minority. Also, why the assumption that the majority of users are children?
