Does anybody know how to explain about this ending -ㄴ가 as in "이상한가?(Is it strange?)"
Generally speaking, it is used to express questions in monologue, or rough assumptions.
It was simply to make a plain question in the old times, and it's still used in the same manner but in that case souunds a bit ancient these days.
Thanks for the answer!
-ㄴ Goes to a adjective, And makes it a Guanhyeongsa(some times adnoun, adverb for nouns)
so, 이상하다 is the origin (not root!), 이상한 is an adnoun to assist Substantives(Noun, Pronoun, Numerals).
and '이상한가?' is from 'ㅁㅁ(이)가 이상한가?; (ㅁㅁ is anything you want) and 'ㅁㅁ(이)가 이상한가?' is from 'ㅁㅁ(이)가 이상한 것인가?'. A part of the sentence I choose, '이상한 것', there is '이상한' assisting pronoun '것'.
Separate names with a comma.
