ParticleEdit

(-eul)

  1. particle indicating the direct object of a verb
Usage notesEdit
  • Like other Korean particles, (eul) is a postposition. It marks the preceding noun as the direct object of the following verb.
  • (-eul) only comes after a word ending in a consonant. If the modified word ends in a vowel, (-reul) is used instead:
    + → 책을 
    chaek + eul → chaegeul
    book(s) + (-eul) → book(s) (direct object)
    사과 + → 사과를 
    sagwa + reul → sagwareul
    apple(s) + (-reul) → apple(s) (direct object)
  • (-eul) is optional if it can be inferred that the noun is the direct object (as opposed to the subject).
  • If the noun is the main topic of the sentence and it can be inferred that the noun is the direct object (as opposed to the subject), (-eun) may be used instead, though in many cases (-eun) might be interpreted as a contrast.
