"가방이 있는 아이"
Translation:A child with a bag

This grammar is pretty tricky when you first learn it. You could think of it as "the bag having baby" but that's not good for long-term understanding. The more you practice it, the more it'll click. It's almost like how adjectives are put before nouns. Spicy chicken = 매운 닭고기. You use the 는/은 or -ㄴ and then the noun. Now if you describe more...The chicken with no head = 머리가 없는 닭이.
Of course, but it changes the meaning.
There's a difference between 'The chicken hasn't got a head' (your sentence) and 'headless chicken' - the second one is a subject/object and yours is a sentence with a VERB.
재미있다 (to be fun - verb) --> 재미있는 (fun, adjective)
Same with the '머리가 없는 닭이' and '닭이는 머리가 없어요.'
I am confused as the way the topic marker is used here, especially if I have to conjugate a longer sentence for example "A child with a bag runs".
How would you conjugate a sentence like this? I have asked a native who replied using two subject markers, therefore I got confused and I couldn't understand the reason behind two subject markers.
Thanks in advance!
it IS wrong
가방이 = bag (could be either subject or object)
있는 = having
가방이 있는 = having a bag
가방이 있는 아이 = child having a bag / child with a bag
아이가 가방을 있어요 = The child has a bag.
They're also different because 아이가 가방을 있어요 is a whole sentence, while 가방이 있는 아이 is a subject (아이) developed with an adjective (가방이 있는).
