Stems
Korean verbs and adjectives are made of stems and endings. The stems of verbs and adjectives do not stand alone, and they are always conjugated by various or inflectional endings. These endings carry various grammatical information and roles such as tense, aspect, and speech levels.

Exercise 3
Conjugate each verb or adjective with the polite speech level ending and try to look up for its meaning.
