I’m called…

You've already learned that there are different endings depending on politeness, but Korean also uses different endings depending on whether the ending is being attached to a stem that ends in a consonant or a vowel. This applies to endings attached to verbs, nouns, and adjectives. You just saw an example of this in Vocabulary Builder 2:

I’m called …(name ending with vowel) 라고해요
…rago haeyo.
I’m called …(name ending with consonant) 이라고해요
…irago haeyo.

All endings will have variations depending on whether the preceding stem ends in a consonant or a vowel. Remember this rule; it will be important later on.
