Korean number counting

Native Korean numbers

Native Korean numbers
Native Korean numbers

As we studied earlier there are two sets of Korean numbers: the native Korean system and the Sino Korean system. In this article, we are going to study about the Native numerical system. Mainly, the Native system is used for counting age and numbers of items or things in between 1 to 99.

  When to use Native Korean number?


  • – Counting any physical objects usually followed by a count word (개, 분,명,  잔, etc
  • – Counting (in general)
  • Counting age (Years)
  •  – Counting  people
  • – Counting number of months (달)

In native system Daseot beon (다섯 번) means “five times” while in sino system o beon(오 번) means “number five”. When, someone has to say their age he or she can use both sino and Korean system of number but the person must use either 세 or 살 depending upon numeral system.

 In the sino Korean number system, 세 is used to talk about age. 22 years old is 이십이 세 but in the Native Korean number system, 22 years old is 스물둘 살.

In the Sino system, To eliminate confusions between 1 and 2 sometimes native numbers are used. Normally, these substitutions take place over the phone and sometimes over direct conversations as well. When we have to say house number, id card number, passport number or phone number we use native numbers. For instance- 5152 is actually, 오-일-오-이, but we can use 오 – 하나 – 오 – 둘.

The teens (11 through 19) are represented by a combination of tens and the ones places in both native and Sino- Korean number system. For instance, 18 would be sib-phaal 발팔, but not usually il-sib-fall in the Sino-Korean system, and yeol- yeodalp (열여덟) in native Korean. Twenty through ninety  Native system has its own unique set of words.

NATIVE KOREAN NUMBERS

         The number 100 in the Sino-Korean number is 백 [baek], and even when you need to use the native Korean number, you can use the same word. The same name is used for the Native numerical system as well.

Though the bigger numbers like 100, 1,000, 10,000 etc., have their own native names, the words for these bigger numbers in the native Korean numbers are no longer used and only sino-Korean numbers are used.
