Object marker: 을 / 를

The marker ‘을/를’ when attached to a noun indicates that noun is direct object of a transitive verb. Transitive verbs are verbs which require an object.


When the noun ends with a vowel, ‘를’ is used.

Ex) 저는 앤디 좋아해요. (I like Andy)

{앤디 is the object and  좋아해요 is a verb}

{디 => ㄷ + 이; 이 is a vowel}


When the noun ends with a consonant, ‘을’ is used.

Ex) 저는 텔레비전 봐요. (I watch Television)

{텔레비전 is the object and  봐요 is a verb}

{전 => ㅈ + 어 + ㄴ; ㄴ is a consonant}


About nunasaoirse

I have been learning Korean language for more than 8 years in either Singapore or Korea. Writing this blog helps me to refresh my knowledge. I am still revising Korean language every now and then but not actively. This blog consisted of the gist of the several Korean textbooks that I am using and you may find some examples "de-ja-vu".
