▲ Jiggeojineun Jejueo, or Happy Jeju Language, is a bi-weekly educational show by Mike Laidman and “EJ” Hong Eun-jeong to promote the endangered language.

Episode 3 from the Jejueo Team looks at the minefield of commenting on a friend’s weight, and in the process introduces a number of new Jejueo vocabulary and grammatical structures.

Note: The “araea” phoneme (not used in modern Korean) is represented by ‘ㅗ’ in the Korean text, the nearest modern phoneme available.

Key expression “호끔 뽕뽕헌 거 닮다.”

1. 호끔(Jeju) = 조금(standard) = a little
'조금만 주세요.’ (standard)
'Just give me a little, please.’
'호끔만 줍서.’ (Jeju)
also, 호끔=호꼼=호쏠=호썰

2. 뽕뽕하다(Jeju)= 뚱뚱하다, 살이 찌다, 배가 빵빵하다 (standard) = fat, gain weight, to have a big belly
'저 애기는 배가 빵빵하다.’ (standard)
'That baby has a big belly.’
'’저 애기 배가 뽕뽕헷져.’ (Jeju)

3. ~헌 거 닮다(Jeju) = ~ 한 것 같다.(Standard) = looks like, seems like , probably
‘나 요즘 홀착헌 거 닮지?’
‘Do you think I have become thinner lately?”
‘나 요즘 날씬해 진 것 같지?’
