Verb + 면 말고


Let’s take a look at the pattern Verb + 말고. Have you ever heard of someone say 싫으면 말고?  It is used to grudgingly accept someone’s refusal of your offer to do something. For example, you feel hungry and you ask your friend to join you order some pizza. You are so excited only to hear a no from him. Here, you can say 싫으면 말고 with a tone of dismay. But you can add a verb before 싫다 for more emphasis. Since that friend doesn’t want to eat with you, use 먹다 as your verb. Take the out and . Hence, 먹기 싫으면 말고. It can be translated as Okay fine, if you don’t want to.
