This is my first time asking a question here so I hope I’m doing everything right. I’m wondering, what is the difference between these forms of the same word:
1) 깨끗 2) 깨끗다 3) 깨끗하다 4) 깨끗습니다
I know they all mean clean. It’s just an example word I picked. I know the first is the word stem. I have no idea what the second is. I think the third is the basic unconjugated word? I know (or I hope) the last one is the correctly conjugated present tense (eg. I/he/she/they clean.)
Could someone please explain the differences AND especially how these would each be used? For example, would an unconjugaed word or stem ever practically be used in the language?
I hope my question is easy to understand. I would be really grateful to anyone who could give me a comprehensive answer.
