Dictionary Skills – Word endings

When you are trying to look up a Korean word in the dictionary, some times it helps to change the word ending.  For example, if you are looking for a conjugated form of the verb hada 하다 then search for 하다 instead.

I found this table in zKorean that gives suggestions on what to look for depending on different word endings.

When your Korean word ends with: Change the ending to:
했다 하다
하다
하다
했어요 하다
했습니다 하다
에서 nothing
롭게 롭다
러워 럽다
다워 답다
있어 있다
됐어 되다
세요
십시오
겠어요
겠습니다
에게 nothing
들께 nothing
nothing
nothing
습니다
nothing
하다
해요 하다
고싶다 (want to)
없어 없다
지다
나다
