WrongCorrectOpinionNOTE 2: TO BE/이다
To be: 이다 In Korean, there is one word to represent is/am/are/etc.: 이다. 이다 is not a verb, nor an adjective, but it does act like one. Sentences with adjectives do not have objects in them. Only sentences with verbs have objects. I eat rice (eat is a verb, the object is rice) I love singing (love is a verb, the object is singing) I study Korean (study is a verb, the object is Korean) I listen to music (listen is a verb, the object is music) All of those sentences have objects because there is a verb in the sentence. Sentences with adjectives: I am pretty I am cold I am hungry I am smart I am a man – in Korean structure is: I는 man am. Now use the words provided above for “man,” “I” and “am” 저나 = I 남자 = man 이다 = am/is/are/(to be) 저나는 남자이다. I am a man. Since there is no object in this sentence, 를 or 을 is not needed. 저나는 ______(이)다 = I am a _______A Tip,1. "이" in "이다" is only needed when the noun before "-(이)다" has a final consonant.2. "나는...(이)다" would be correct, and "저는...이에요/예요" or "저는 ...ㅂ니다"e.g.I am a man = 나는 남자다(informal, not polite)= 저는 남자예요(informal, polite)= 저는 남자입니다(formal, polite)\^o^/
