    Do you mean like the case of "않" as in "않다(be not, do not)", for example?

    Well, in Korean language some words are different between when it's pronounced and when it's written. In this case, the "ㅎ" at the bottem as in "않" makes change in the pronunciation of "다" to "타". So when you pronounce the word "않다", the written form, it's pronounced as "안타". But I wouldn't say it's really "difference" between written form and when it's spoken, as a native speaker. So it's not like you have to memorize or something. Mostly it's for the efficiency of the pronunciation and ease, so all you have to do is just to sound Korean naturally, if you can.
