Which type of sentence pattern would you like to learn to construct?
|Korean Pattern||English Examples|
|Subject-predicate-descriptive verb*||Joe is a doctor.
This is a pencil.
|Subject-object-action verb||I see the cat.
Mr. Kim buys a book.
|Subject-predicate-"existence" verb||There is a school [in Seoul].
There isn’t a book [on the table].
Mr. Kim has a chair.
I don’t have a key.
(Yes, these all really fit the same pattern in Korean!)
*Note: A descriptive verb is similar to what we call a linking verb in English.
