Along with its positive, {{ko-l}}, it is often categorized as a Korean adjective, but often placed in their own grammatical category distinct from both verbs and adjectives. Unlike {{ko-l}}, {{ko-l}} is not appended to the preceding word, but written after an intervening space. {{ko-l}} and {{ko-l}} are the only two Korean words that take a subjective complement, which is marked with case marker /.
