Uzbek and Korean are considered to be alike languages. When, in both languages, link verbs are used within sentences, similarities can be observed and equivalences of main and link verbs exist in Korean as well. For example, in Uzbek language the link verb qo'ymoq coincides with verbs in Korean ?? [no?hda] and ?? [duda]. Whenever, in context, the meaning of the link verb "qo'ymoq" is similar to link verbs ?? [no?hda] and ?? [duda], their meanings become close. However, this rule may not always be applied. In some cases, if the verb qo'ymoq means modality in Uzbek language, it can be translated into Korean with the help of other link verbs. This article compares the different meanings of auxiliary verb qo?ymoq in Uzbek and their expression in Korean.
