Verbs in Space, not learning

Do you know the difference between action verbs 동사 and descriptive/stative verbs 형용사?  형용사 are sometimes called adjectives.  Inspired by Sheppard Software’s Verbs in Space game, I made a simple game to practice identifying verbs as 동사 or 형용사.

Korean verbs are typically classified into two categories: action (or process) and  state (or description).

  • For a list of Korean action verbs, see Korean verbs
  • For a list of Korean stative verbs, see Korean adjectives ,동사 and 형용사, and Adjectives 
  • Existential verbs (있다 “to exist” and  없다 “not to exist.”) and copulative verbs (이다”to be,” and 아니다 “not to be” ) are subset of stative/descriptive verbs.
