Usage notesEdit

(eot, “eot”) is used after syllables with “dark” vowels, i.e. (eo, “eo”) and (u, “u”). After “bright” vowels, (at, “at”) is used instead. If the syllable to which (eot, “eot”) is appended ends in the vowel (eo, “eo”) or (eu, “eu”), the two syllables usually contract:

  • 서다 (seoda, “to stand; to stop”): (seo, “seo”) + (eot, “-ed”) + (da, “da”): 섰다 (seotda, “stood, stopped”)
  • 쓰다 (sseuda, “to write; to be bitter”): (sseu, “sseu”) + (eot, “-ed”) + (da, “da”): 썼다 (seotda, “wrote, was bitter”)
