Pre-Final and Final Endings
Korean predicates combine with endings to form conjugations. Endings are added to a predicate in a particular order and changes the meaning of a sentence when added. Below we cover two categories of endings and give examples.
Pre-final endings are added directly to a predicate stem.
If a predicate contains a pre-final ending, the final ending is placed after the pre-final ending. Otherwise the final ending is added to the predicate stem.
Here are some example sentences demonstrating the placement of predicate stems, pre-final endings and final endings.
