안녕하세요! 저 에릭이라고 해요. 반가워요. ^^ 도움이 필요하시면 저한테 물어보셔도 됩니다~ If you want to ask me about conjugation rules, I'd be happy to try and help :)
고마워! I don't know when to use 임니다 or 습니다 or even 입니다. Please help. I have no idea the difference between 입니다 and 임니다. Why do they sound similar.
-ㅂ니다 is pronounced more like -ㅁ니다 since the combination of ㅂand ㄴ back to back makes a softer sound like "mn" instead of "bn." This because the ㅂ doesn't have a 모음(vowel) immediately after it to make it voiced.
I think you are writing -ㅂ니다 as -ㅁ니다 because of the way it sounds, but -ㅁ니다 isn't a conjugation form.
To distinguish when to use -ㅂ니다 or -습니다, look at the last sound of the verb stem.
For example, 입니다. 입니다 is the conjugated form of 이다 (to be). If you remove -다, "이" ends in a vowel sound. Since it ends in a vowel sound, you add -ㅂ니다.
Here are some other examples for -ㅂ니다:
하다 -> 합니다
가다 -> 갑니다
계시다 -> 계십니다
On the other hand, if the verb stem ends in a consonant sound, add 습니다.
Examples: 먹다 -> 먹습니다
씻다 -> 씻습니다
닫다 -> 닫습니다
This is also the case for past tense since you are adding -았/었/였 before the ending.
했다 -> 했습니다
갔다 -> 갔습니다
I hope that helped some!!
