We have two types of nouns.
One is just simple noun words without any conjugation and
the other is nouns conjugated from verbs.
Why do we need to make verbs to nouns?
Okay.. I will give you an example in English.
For example, in the sentence of 'I like singing
'sing' is a verb and by adding 'ing',
the word becomes a noun since you have to use it as object noun in the sentence.
Is it only for objects then?
No.. it's for subjects as well.
For another example, in the sentence of 'Singing
is great', 'singing' is a subject noun.
Therefore, in English, you add 'ing' in verbs to make nouns.
Three ways to make verbs into nouns
1) Verb root + 기
2) Verb adjective + 것
3) Verb root + ㅁ
(after a vowel) or 음
(after a consonant)
Verb root + 기
Usually regular verbs are used with 기 not adject verbs,
and this type of noun is used for planning on agenda.
Verb adjective + 것
First, you make verbs into adjectves (if you don't know how, please checkout Adjective course first).
Second, add 것.
|cute thing, something cute
|difficult thing, something difficult
Verb root + ㅁ (after a vowel) or 음 (after a consonant)
This type of noun as regular verbs is used for action that happend in the past.
If it's a noun conjugated from adjective verbs, usually they mean the state of being.
