Finally I understand how to read hangeul that has 2 final consonants (e.g. 읷). I was pretty baffled since I started picking up Korean in December last year.
My classes at NEX requires us to study for spelling. We were also required to memorise,가나다라마바사아자차카타파하 in order. I was kinda irritated and was thinking, “Hey I know the sounds and how to write it. Isn’t it enough?” Well, I was wrong. Before I continue explaining why I was wrong, let me give all you readers a short quiz. How would your read the following?
1) 앖 – read as 압 or 앗?
2) 얽 – read as 얼 or 억?
3) 읺 – read as 인 or 잏?
* drum roll * It should be read as 압, 억 and 인. Guesswork? Nah. We would read the consonant that comes first in this 가나다라마바사아자차카타파하 order. Yes, reading it in order is important after all. ^^
