Jul 9 '19 at 8:13 comment added Ignatius Note: the standard way of writing ㄹ has three segments, not five. ㅁ also has three, not four.
Mar 22 '18 at 16:57 comment added Константин Ван Well, ㅁ is supposed to be three strokes..
Jun 25 '16 at 4:50 comment added blimpy ㅁ is pretty limited in terms of pure shape. So, it's reasonable to say that there really are only a few ways to write a ㅁ. However, it's always possible that calligraphers produce other ways to write the letter (or any letter, for that matter).
Jun 25 '16 at 2:44 comment added Isaac But is there really any other way to write a ㅁ?
Jun 23 '16 at 14:28 comment added blimpy Ah, that would be an important remark. Thanks!

Added suggestion from a comment below
Jun 23 '16 at 14:17 comment added busukxuan It would probably be useful to note in your answer that the "non-standard" forms are nothing special, just cursive forms. Unrelated: I'm a Chinese, and I am used to writing the 口 radical enough that when I write ㅁ I produce exactly the same thing in the picture you linked to :P
Jun 23 '16 at 10:31 comment added blimpy I feel the same way. My teacher did the same when I first took a class. She also made a fuss when the TA's didn't obey stroke order, which was funny. But it had led me to some amount of frustration when I tried reading some "ambiguous"-looking Korean writing. However, after some time, you do come to understand the patterns and stroke orders.
Jun 23 '16 at 4:56 comment added Eilon I'm taking a Korean class and usually the teachers writes on the board using "proper" handwriting, which is very easy to read. But sometimes she's in a hurry and uses "cursive" handwriting and it's quite difficult to read! But I've gotten quite used to it, and the more Korean you know, the more you can decipher seemingly-ambiguous handwriting.
