hanokvocab

In today’s blog we will be learning the phrase 잃어버리다.

 

잃다 = To lose

버리다 = To throw away

 

You can easily say 잃었어요 when you have lost something, but most Koreans add on 버리다 to enhance that they lost the item without meaning to. 

 

Another way for “to lose” is 분실하다. However this is only used for losing items/things, unlike 잃다 which can mean to lose someone, a relationship, etc.
