I wonder if there are useful synonyms for 게 (crab) given how similarly it sounds like 개 (dog).

If it helps, I've heard 강아지 used to refer to dogs. I believe it's more of a way to say "puppy" or a cuter way of saying "dog"

멍멍이 and 댕댕이 too i think

꽃게 is the typical red crab and is often used instead of 게

So literally it means 'flower crab'?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Yeondk_

Yes its called 'flower crab' because it has redish dots on the shell of the crab that looks like flowers

개 (dog) is usally spoken as 멍이 or 강아지

the crab게 is pronounce like the "a" of "take" but without the sound y 개 the dog is pronounce like the "e" of the word bet.

Using vowel explainations like this does not work because across different accents the vowel sounds vary considerably. How an American from New York would say those words is not the same as how an Australian would or a British person would. For example, in a New Zealand accent, the word bet sounds very similar to the word "bit" in other accents.

also most Koreans will tell you that ㅐ and ㅔ sound exactly the same. so you don't need to worry about it.
