In this lesson we are going to learn about the further ways to explain the future. You will learn that there are 3 main ways of putting verbs into the future tense.
Previously we have learned the probable future: Møgûl køyeyo – I will (probably) eat. 먹을 거예요
The other two forms show different measures of the future.
Let’s take the form for the assertive future. It is -ûl keyo. This also translates as “promise”.
Take the infinitive form and remove the final ‘ta/da’. Møgda 먹다 > Møg 먹
You add ‘-ûl keyo’ to forms ending in a consonant. 을게요
Add ‘-l keyo’ to a vowel ending form. ㄹ게요
= Møgûl keyo – I will eat / I promise to eat 먹을게요
읽을게요 – ilgûl geyo – I will read (I promise to read)
만날게요 – mannal keyo – I will meet (I promise to meet)
앉을게요 – anjûl keyo – I will sit (I promise to sit)
저 신문을 읽을게요 – jo shinmun-ûl ilgûl geyo – I will read that newspaper over there / I promise to read…
그 곳에서 만날게요 – kû kos-eso mannal geyo – I will meet you at that place / I promise to meet you…
이 서파에 안 이따가 앉을게요 – i sop’a-e an ittaga anjûl keyo – I will sit (I promise to sit) on this sofa later
The next future tense marker is ‘ûlleyo’ / lleyo’ 을레요 / ㄹ레요 which is added to the infinitive minus the ‘ta/da’ ending.
This has the meaning of “I will” / “I intend to”.
ilgûlleyo – I will read / I intend to read 읽을레요
mannalleyo – I will meet / I intend to meet 만날레요
anjûlleyo – I will sit / I intend to sit 앉을레요
Nae-il no-hago mannalleyo – I will meet you tomorrow (I intend to meet…) 내일 너하고 만날레요
daûm chumal-e i ch’aeg-ûl ilgûlleyo – I will read this book next weekend (I intend to read this book…) 다음 주말에 책을 읽을레요
yøgi-eso anjûlleyo – I will sit here (I intend to sit…) 여기에서 앉을레요
Møgûl køyeyo – I will eat / I will probably eat 먹을거예요
Møgûl keyo – I will eat / I promise to eat 먹을게요
Møgûlleyo – I will eat / I intend to eat 먹을레요
You can’t use the “I intend to” form in any other form other than the “I” form. It can’t be used to mean, “You intend to”.
