Korean Sentence Order

Korean sentence order

The biggest difference between English and Korean sentence structure is the word order. And unlike English it is common to omit the subject in Korean sentences.

1. ‘I’ is commonly omitted and the meaning is still understood that the ‘actor’ is ‘I’.

2. There is no fixed order to position ‘time, place, object’ in a sentence. The order is quite flexible. So you can write the above sentence to this:

• I listen to music at home =

나는     집에서     지금     음악을     들어요.

I       at home   now    music    to listen

지금     나는     집에서        음악을      들어요

now      I      at home    music     to listen
