question about pronounciation

Postby lishaoxuan » 2008-01-18, 12:22

I read on a web page that:

ㄱ is similar to g as in god.

ㄲ is similar to k as in sky.


my question is: what's the difference between that g and k.

When I learned English, I didn't notice any difference.

Could anyone explain it for me.I appreciate it.

MMm ok.

ㄱ (as in 가) = /k/
ㄱ (as in 아가) = /g/
ㄱ (as in 악) = /k/
ㄱ (as in 악아) = /g/
ㄱ (as in 악사) = /k/ or /ʔk/

ㄲ (as in 까) = /g/
ㄲ (as in 아까) = /ʔk/
ㄲ (as in 앆) = /k/
ㄲ (as in 앆아) = /ʔk/
ㄲ (as in 앆사) = /k/ or /ʔk/

ㅋ (as in 카) = /kʰ/
ㅋ (as in 아카) = /k/ or /kʰ/
ㅋ (as in 앜) = /k/
ㅋ (as in 앜아) = /k/ or /kʰ/
ㅋ (as in 앜사) = /k/ or /ʔk/


something to that extent.... hope this helps :)
