Issues that need to be looked into

If you find errors, please edit this page and add them to the following list

  • Irregular verbs (not detected)
    • None
  • Verb forms (like if verbs should be conjugated or not)
    • None
  • Conjugation
    • None
  • Pronunciation (any wrong or non-existing rules)
    • Conformation on: ㄹ+ㅅ = ㄹ+ㅆ?
    • ㄱ/ㄺ+ㄱ=ㄱ+ㄲ? -that sounds right
    • I think there's other rules on two consonants by each other where the next consonant becomes 쌍
      • In general, when the 받침 is pronounced as ㄷ,ㄱ,or ㅂ (i.e. when the 받침 is ㄷ,ㅌ,ㅈ,ㅊ,ㅅ,ㅆ,ㄱ,ㄲ,ㅋ,ㅂ,or ㅍ) and the following consonant is ㄷ,ㄱ,ㅂ,ㅅ, or ㅈ, the following consonant becomes 쌍. The second consonant also becomes 쌍 in some other cases, but those are always irregular, and you need to look in a 국어사전 to find them out, e.g. 발전하다 is pronounced 발쩐하다.
  • Other
    • If Korean IME is on while the keyboard is open, it doesn't work
