,
u
and
i
) but also ‘complex’ vowels (eg
ae
,
ya
, wa, etc) – is represented as adifferent vowel symbol in Hangeul. Let’s practise the sounds.

As mentioned in the main text,
b
,
d
,
g
and
j
are pronounced the sameas in English, except when they occur sentence-initially. In this casethey are pronounced as
p
,
,
and
ch
, respectively. Now practisereading the following expressions.
ban
-
chan a
-
beo
-
ji don pa
-
do
side dishes father money waves
gom a
-
gi Jo
-
a
-
yo a
-
ju
bear baby Thats good! very much
Korean
r
is a ‘flap
. Although replacing
r
with English
does notbring about a meaning change, you should know
r
is produced by asingle, quick flap of the tongue against the alveolar ridge – the inwardprojection of the gums between the upper teeth and the hard palate.Ask your instructor for a demonstration. Now practise.
sa
-
rang gu
-
reum da
-
ri Geu
-
rae
-
yo
love clouds bridge Thats right!
Korean
l
is a ‘retroflex’
l
. You produce a retroflex
l
sound in the samemanner as you do an
l
, except that your tongue tip should be placed onthe hard palate, not at the back of the upper teeth. Now practise.
sal
-
lim Mol
-
la
-
yo Dal
-
la
-
yo gil
house keeping I don’t know. It’s different. road
A doubled consonant, ie
pp
,
tt
,
ss
,
jj
or
kk
,indicates tensedpronunciation. In Englishtensed consonants do notconstitute separate soundcategories fordistinguishing betweenwords, but tensedconsonants do exist. Forexample, the
p
,
and
sounds in
s
clusters aretensed consonants – suchas
spot 
,
stop
and
sky
. Nowpractise.
bul ppul pul
re horn grass
dal ttal tal

Ja
-
yo Jja
-
yo Cha
-
yo
I’m sleeping. It’s salty! It’s cold!

By convention,
s
and
ss
shall be pronounced respectively as
sh
and ‘tensed’
sh
(ie
sh
with astronger hiss) if they are followed by
i
or
y
. When you read
si
, for instance, you should notread it in the same way of naming the English letter
c
but as
she
.

heom si Sim

-
hae
