    사왔다고요

    If someone was asked a question and they replied quite aggressively and was raising their voice and the person(who asked them the question) then asked them 뭐 사왔다고요.Would it mean "what are you fighting" because I am know that fighting/fight has a double ㅆ but can it also be spelt as this 사왔?If it doesn't mean this ,does anyone know what it means?

    Re: 사왔다고요

    I am only guessing but I think you are talking about this verb:

    사납다-> 사나왔다 after proper conjugation

    Do you have the audio/video clip somewhere?

    뭐 사왔다고요? literally means ‘What did you buy and come back?’ But if someone says the phrase in a rising and aggressive intonation, it can express their uncomfortable emotion like ‘What the heck did you buy and come back?’.

    You were confused with "뭐? 싸웠다고요?(What? Did you fight?/ What? Did you say you fought?)"

    But 뭐 사 왔다고요? is something completely different.

    사 오다 = 사서 오다(buy and come back)

    뭐 사왔다(bought something and came back)

    고요? (is used when someone said something but you ask again because you didn't get what he said.)

    Therefore, 뭐 사 왔다고요? is "What did you say you bought (and came back)?"
