I’m reading Korean Vocabulary Practice for Foreigners – Intermediate – Japanese version.
The English version is also available at twoChois.com.
I started reading from the last chapter, which explains about proverbs, 4-letter idioms, and onomatopoeia for TOPIK intermediate level.
Today I finished the part about onomatopoeia and mimetic words (20 words in total), which must be familiar for you if you enjoy online Korean comic strip on Naver and Daum.
The explanation is concise and clear. But I wonder why the book doesn’t give the exact Japanese onomatopoeic words, and instead, just inserts the original Korean word in the Japanese sentence. As always, Naver dictionary solves my problem.
The exercise part gives more sample situation where the words can be used.
So next, I’ve got proverbs (속담) and idiomatic phrases (관용어) left but that’s for tomorrow. ###
