Hey guys, this whole project looks very useful. I hope I haven't made any goofs on my addition to this page, but please correct or ask if I have. I'm an old Peace Corps volunteer who lived and worked in 화순군 보건소, 전라남도 from 1971 to 1973. --Snow (talk) 12:22, 1 June 2013 (PDT)

Thanks for your contributions and hope you make more :) --DigitalSoju (talk) 23:49, 4 June 2013 (PDT)
I'm living in 전라북도 전주(Jeonju, Jeollabuk-do) for over 20 years. From the point of view of the native, your contributions are great. :D --Silencist (talk) 03:01, 5 June 2013 (PDT)
Thanks...I hesitate to move words I used to hear 40 years ago up onto the current use list, though, since they may have faded away in that time. I did run across a gentleman a few years ago, 2009 Fall, who spoke a strong dialect. He was in his late 60s, and was some sort of director of tourism for Hwasun Gun. I spent several hours with him and don't recall hearing a single "요" verb ending the entire time. --Snow (talk) 14:32, 6 June 2013 (PDT)
