Inflectional suffix[edit]

ㅂ시다 (psida)

  1. (hortative suffix for sentence-final verbs in the 하오체 (haoche, “formal”) speech level)
    불고기먹읍시다. Bulgogi-reul meogeupsida. "Let's have bulgogi."
    김치만들어 봅시다. Gimchi-reul mandeureo bopsida. "Let's try making kimchi."

Usage notes[edit]

ㅂ시다 (psida) is combined with the sequential form of a verb. If the stem ends in (l), the (l) falls out.

E.g. 걷다 (걸으니/걸으면) (geotda (georeuni/georeumyeon), “to walk”) → 걸읍시다 (georeupsida, “Let's walk!”)
살다 (니/살면) (salda (sani/salmyeon), “to live”) → 시다 (sapsida, “Let's live (in)!”)
