Usage notes[edit]

To avoid confusion with 물다 (mulda, “to bite”), as in many conjugations both verbs sound and are spelled alike (both have the stem 물어 (mureo) due to irregular conjugations), in most usages the verb is ombined with 보다 (boda, “to try”) to form 물어보다 (mureoboda) to form the same meaning.
