Etymology edit

Of native Korean origin, from Middle Korean ᄒᆞ다〮 (Yale: hò-tá), from Old Korean (*HO(Y)-). Cognate with Jeju ᄒᆞ다 (hawda).

It is believed that at an ancient stage, the stem of ᄒᆞ다〮 (Yale: hò-tá) was actually *ᄒᆡ (Yale: *hoy-), as still evidenced by the irregular infinitive form 하여 (hayeo) (Vovin 2010, p. 27).

Usage notes edit

("to say", for direct quotes):

  • Using 하고 (hago) is more colloquial and has a nuance of more intimate or faithful quoting than using 이라고 (-irago). For example, speakers use 하고 (hago) when imitating the actual way something was said (e.g. someone's accent, prosody, etc.), and 이라고 (-irago) when quoting written material.[1]
    보고 " 어디?" 하고 묻는 .Na-bogo ya neo eodi-ya? Hago munneun geo-ya.He was like, "Hey, where are you?"
    촉수엄금이라고 적혀있었다.Choksueomgeum-irago jeokhyeo-isseotda.It was written, "Do not touch."


  • As Korean verbs and adjectives are a fully closed class, all newly borrowed or coined verbs and adjectives must be formed by 하다 (hada).


  • In compound verbs or adjectives, the stem can be contracted. This often has a literary nuance.
  • For some of the adverbs formed by such a contraction of conjugated forms, the presumed original verb or adjective is no longer widely used, if at all. For example, the adverb 기어(期於)코 (gieoko, no matter what; in the end) has no corresponding adjective *기어(期於)하다 (*gieohada).
  • Some of these contracted forms have undergone semantic shifts and are no longer fully equivalent to the uncontracted forms. For example, 무심(無心)코 (musimko, thoughtlessly) cannot be replaced by 무심(無心)하고 (musim-hago, [one] is careless, and...).
  • Contraction is more common for connective suffixes and less common for sentence-final ones, especially informal ones.
  • Contraction is more common in Gyeongsang dialect than in Standard Seoul Korean.

(contraction in indirect quotes)


  • In less formal language, the infinitive 하여 (hayeo) is always contracted to (hae).
  • Because the intimate style is never formal by definition, 하여 (hayeo) can never replace (hae) in such contexts.
