    Wow, I only knew half of these. What about the verb “to clean?” I know 씻다, 청소하다, and 닦다. Are there any more?

    • Dominic 'Dom' Dinkins says:

      I’ll have to ask Hyo about anymore, but you are right about how many there are. I alo wanna find out why they have so many verbs for the same action lol.

      • Anna Tzanova says:

        May be one of those is used only as honorific? Same as 먹다 and 드시다.

        • Maëva Thiebaut says:

          If you wany to use honorific it will be only for others and will include 시 like 쓰시다

      • Paul says:

        I think you’ll find that each of these describes the action. In other words, the verbs have more breadth of use than merely wearing a certain article of clothing. Whilst I haven’t encountered any of these verbs in other contexts yet myself, this is how it works in Japanese. My dictionary at least seems to provide some plausible explanations in its list of homonyms. English has a similar thing colloquially with say, slipping on a shirt and slapping on a hat.

        Thank you for compiling such a neat list of them though!

    • Elias Junior says:

      세수 = the face
      설거지 = the dishes
      빨래 / 세탁 = the clothes

      they all can combine with 하다 like 청소 D:

    but 끼다 can be also used for wearing glasses, right?
    and there is also 가방을 들다 for bags you wear on your shoulders, usually woman bags ^^
