baegopeuda (배고프다)

show comment

In this construction, bae can be identified as 'belly', although I don't know what the 'verbal' element here, gopeu- means. Thus as the name of this entry and also in ex. 15, the verb and the noun-like element have not been glossed separately, although the noun-like element may occur with case marking, see comments in ex. 184 for more.
