In English, we say “flotsam and jetsam” to mean odds and ends. One company I worked for had weekly “flotsam and jetsam” collection displays of the random things people end up collecting in their lives. For example, one week a woman brought in her red shoe collection.
Hanguk Babble has turned into my “flotsam and jetsam” collection of Korean things I am learning. 🙂 ^^
I love the variety in Hanguk Babble, but to others it is just random bits that wash up on the shore. What compels me to look up the Korean words for flotsam and jetsam? Certainly not on the most frequently used words list. However, language learning is personal, and this girl who spent years living by the sea, has a fondness for driftwood, sea glass, sea shells, and salvage. So if you read this blog to see what random Korean I will talk about, then today you get “flotsam and jetsam”. Enjoy.
