Question: im learning the korean characters and i know that the character ᄋ means or sounds like "ng" but in the word 천만에요 you see the character several times, but when you spell out the word "Chonmaneyo" you dont see "ng" i know the "eo" character is in there though it not spelled with the extra e so my question, why does the "ng" show up so often even when there is no "ng"? i know you can combined letter to but im still confused :( thanks!

For that character, there are two sounds. The "ng" sound, and also as a silent consonant used to combine with vowels. For example, "사랑" is read as "sarang." The ᄋcharacter contains the "ng" sound, but in "천만에요", the ᄋ character is silent. The prupose of it being there is to accompany the vowel, because the vowel cannot stand alone. So when you see ᄋwith a vowel, you just read it as the vowel. I hope this isn't confusing for you. I'm not too good at explaining.. Good luck with it!

Jayden Originally Answered: Antonyms of "character"? Wht does this quote means? "Commitment in the face of a conflict produces character?
I can only think of disrepute as an antonym. The quote means that showing courage and sticking to your guns in the face of danger or dispute builds your character (moral and ethical foundation).

Well, 'ㅇ' sounds nothing as usual. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xq4S7M9rJ... This is probably helpful for you. For example, 피아노 [Piano] = same meaning and same sound with English. In this case, ' O ' sounds nothing. But if 'o' coms in the bottom, It sounds 'ng'. For example, 사랑 [sarang / love] 가방 [gabang / bag] 공주 [gongju / princess]

the ᄋ character is pronounced "young- ja", "yee-uhng" or "gong" Its sound is most similiar to the English letter "A" or "E" its also used to make "ng" sounds like you said it is a consanant

OMG!! WE ARE WORKING ON THE BOOK TOO, we started our essays today xD Slim is more of a static character. John Steinbeck gives alot of adverbs of how he speaks to Lennie and George "in a godlike manner""his voice invited confidence" (you'll find the quotes halfway through the book when they get to the ranch) :D Hope this helps ya loads xD
