매 주말마다: every each weekend
Is -마다 necessary here or is it just part of the expression?
I'm questioning if 매 is necessary
either 주말마다, 매주말, or 매주 주말. also need 에서 particle since you are talking about "every weekend" as a time you do something rather than about the weekend itself, and the verb doesn't pertain to an action where you change location.
每 週末마다 우리는 같이 映畫를 봐요.
What's the point of using 매 if 마다 is there?
매 is not used in Korean in this way. Only as a prefix for something like 매일, but not 매주말.... Especially when - 마다 is used because it would imply the same meaning.
The notes for the lesson explain that this is for emphasis, much like "each and every" in English
There are no notes for this lesson (anymore?) 2020-03-23
Why can't I say Every weekend we see a movie together
