Consonant comes after batchim 'ㄴ' or 'ㅁ'

When verb with the batchim 'ㄴ(ㄵ)' or 'ㅁ(ㄻ)' combined with '어미' (word ending like 다, 지, 고) that begins with consonant 'ㄱ, ㄷ, ㅅ, ㅈ', the consonant shall be pronounced as double consonant (ㄲ, ㄸ, ㅆ, ㅉ).

Note: Combined batchim 'ㄵ' is pronounced as 'ㄴ' while 'ㄻ' is pronounced as 'ㅁ'. As such they 'behave' like 'ㄴ,ㅁ'. Also note that 'ㅂ' is not pronounced as 'ㅃ' in this situation.

  2. 한국어 발음은 쉬운 일이 아니야.
    나 헷갈린 경우도 많더라.
    근데 공부할면 할수록 익숙하게 될거야.
    걱정말고 너도 할 수 있지.
