A particle is a part of Korean speech. Particles are added to a word to indicate that the word has a certain meaning or grammatical role in a sentence. Case particles attach only to nouns while special particles may attach to a noun or another particle. Each particle does not have only 1 meaning but several. For example the particle has many meanings including, methods, direction of movement or cause.
In the following section we introduce perhaps the 3 most important Korean particles. The subject particle, the topic particle and the object particle.
A dedicated topic will be used to introduce more particles in later sections.
