[wp-svg-icons icon=”arrow-right-2″ wrap=”span”] Sleepy / 困了 / 졸리다 / Buồn ngủ

ねむたい” means “Go to bed” and which has been used as the meaning of “tired and wanting to sleep”. The basic ways to use it are that “___はねむたい。(___ am/is/are sleepy.)”, etc. For instance, “わたしねむたい。(I am sleepy.)”, “かれねむいようだ。(Seemingly he is sleepy.)”, etc. The tips for using it are that “STATES YOU ARE SLEEPY”, unlike “たい”. Everyone could use “ねむたい” as casual, polite and formal such as “ねむたいよ。(I am sleepy.)” as casual and “ねむたいです。(I am sleepy.)” as polite and formal. Additionally, native speakers sometimes omit “た” of “ねむたい”, so that would be “ねむい” which is absolutely as the same meaning, however, “ねむたい” sounds a little bit sleepy than “ねむい”.
