Lesson created by Timmy McCarty

The following words are words that could be classified as "Time Phrase's." A time phrase can be any word that has to do with a perticular time sequence. Such as yesterday, or today, or three days from now. With words like "3 days ago" Sam-il-cheon (Sahm-eel-chone) and "by tuesday" Hwa-yo-il-kka-ji(Hwah-yo-eel-kah-chee) are phrases that can be subsituted by another word just by adding it. For example "3 days ago" Sam-il-cheon (Sahm-eel-chone) can be changed to "2 days ago" I-il-chone (Ee-eel-chone) just by substituting 3 for 2.
