LEVEL 4 LESSON 17
In the previous lesson, we looked at the spacing rules in Korean. In addition to the exceptions of spacing in Korean, which were cases in which two different words (or more) were written together without space, there are also times when certain words are put together to make a new, shorter form. We are going to take a look at word contractions in Korean through a number of lessons, and this is the first part.
