It’s hard to do prayers without them, and if you try, it probably ended with an unricked thought that nobody can understand.

This little word does not have a direct meaning in English, but serves a number of different functions.

What is Chinese Ne?
呢 (NE) is a modal particle. Instead of using the timesGeneral, Chinese language uses particles-Modales and aspect particles: transmit time, such as completion, continuation and contrast.
Manual particles, or, 语气 助词 (Yǔqì Zhāci), in particular, indicate the mood and attitude, and are also known as final particles of prayers because they always come at the end of sentences .
No matter how you want to use modal particles, the construction will always remain the same:
Declaration + Modal Particle
Therefore, in the case of 呢, order It will always be:
Declaration + 呢
The most manner particles are almost impossible to translate since English does not use it. Rather, they are mainly used to flavor prayers, set tones and transmit tacit meanings (such as mood).
The particles are used a lot in Chinese. In fact, it is almost impossible to find a series of sentences thatDo not use and # 8217;T at least one.So without learning them: the modal and aspect particles alike, found it and # 8217;It is extremely difficult to understand the nativepeepers and Chinese content.
If that passed over the head, do not worry.I \u0026 # 8217;LL will incorporate several examples when we get to use 呢!
But for now, all you need to know is that 呢 is a modal particle and has five important uses.These uses are:
asking a reciprocal reitinking \u0026 # 8220;What happens with \u0026 # 8230;\u0026 # 8221;\u0026 # 8221;O \u0026 # 8220;What about \u0026 # 8230;\u0026 # 8221;asking \u0026 # 8220;where \u0026 # 8221;Take conversations and prayers casualcontinuation and contrast
1. Ask a reciprocal question
We already talked about how it is used 呢 to ask a question in the original question.Let \u0026 # 8217;Take a look at some more examples:
A: 你 好 吗?(Nǐ hǎo ma?) – Howthese?
B: 我 很 好.你 呢? (Wǒ Hěn Hǎo. Nǐ NE?) – I \u0026 # 8217; m well. And you?
A: 你 上 个 周末 做 什么 什么? (Nǐ shàng ge zhōumò zuò shanme?) – What did you do last weekend?
B: 我 你 呢 我 我 我 你? (Wǒ Zài jiā kàn diàn yǐng. Nǐ ne?) – I stayed at home and I observed movies. What about you?
2. Ask \u0026 # 8220; What happens with \u0026 # 8230; \u0026 # 8221; Y \u0026 # 8220; What about \u0026 # 8230;
When you are discussing a topic but you want to ask for something else, you can use something else, you can use 呢. It is a kind of I like to ask a reciprocal question because while you are changing the topic of conversation completely, you are directing it to another object.
That probably sounds a bit. Confused, because the closest translation we have of this in English is \u0026 # 8220; What happens with \u0026 # 8230; \u0026 # 8221; \u0026 # 8221; O \u0026 # 8220; What about \u0026 # 8230; \u0026 # 8221?
per axisMPLO, when your friend asks, \u0026 # 8220; Do you want pizza for dinner? \u0026 # 8221; You can say, \u0026 # 8220; I had pizza yesterday. What about the pasta? \u0026 # 8221;
Let \u0026 # 8217; Take a look at some examples using 呢 In this way:
这个 这个 很 这个 这个 这个? (Zhè GE Hěn Hǎo. NÀ GE NE?) – This is good. What’s up with that?
的 的 哥哥 有 工作 工作.弟弟 呢? (Nǐ by GēGE YǒU Gōngzuò. Dìdi ne?) – Your older brother has a job. What about your younger brother?
这个 我 没有 没有 这个 这个 下 星期 呢? (Zhè GE Xīngqī Wǒ Méi Yǒu Kòng. Xià GE Xīngqī ne?) – I do not have time this week. How about?
3. Ask \u0026 # 8220; Where \u0026 # 8221;
Did you know that you can form a \u0026 # 8220; WHERE \u0026 # 8221; Question without using the words 哪里 (nǎ lǐ) or 在 哪 (Zài nǎ) – Where?
How? With the modal particle 呢.
The use of 呢 at the end of a statement is a more advanced and native wayto ask where something is. Native speakers often do this and expect the other person to know what they mean by the context, so prepare if I heard it in conversations, dramas or movies and other Chinese situations of the real world.
The good news is that this structure is super easy to form. All you have to do is place 呢 after an object.
钱 钱? (Qián ne?) – Where is the money?
你 妹妹 呢? (Nǐ mèimei ne?) – Where is your little sister?
的 的 衣服 呢? (Wǒ Yīfu ne?) – Where are my clothes?
4. Take conversations and casual prayers
If you \u0026 # 8217, you are talking to a friend, you do not want to talk to them in the same way as you \u0026 # 8217; Did with a stranger or an adult. For this reason, you will want to make sure your friend knows it \u0026 # 8217; It is being informal with them.
More, be able to participate in theFormal and informal discourse in Mandarin Chinese is an important ability to develop, and one of us, me \u0026 # 8217; LL, finally, you will have to use it if you really plan to speak the language.
Luckily, speaking at different honorary levels, it is not as difficult as it is in others. Asian languages \u200b\u200bsuch as Korean, who uses verbal conjugations to indicate the level of speech.
In its place, one of the easiest ways you can make your conversations casual is attaching 呢 at the end of a prayer or two.
You can think of 呢 in this type of prayers such as \u0026 # 8220; SO \u0026 # 8230; \u0026 # 8223; \u0026 # 8221; \u0026 # 8223; in English. For example:
你 你 你 不 你 你 你 (Nǐ Wèi Shanme Bù Chī Ròu ne?) – So, why do not you eat meat?
的 的 的 的 的? (Nǐ xǐhuān shanme yàng of yùndòng ne?) – What kind of sports do you like?
5. Continuation and contrast
If you want to make clear thatEU A situation is ongoing or even happens at present, it simply falls at the end of your statement.
他 还 在 家 里. (Tā Hái Zài jiā lǐ ne.) – He is still at home.
她 她 呢 呢. (Tā Zhèng Zài Shuì jiào ne.) – She is sleeping
If you want to contrast two different things, you can also use 呢. To do so, the object or highlight that you want to compare the needs that must be established before the second.
他 他 他 他 他 他 喜欢 现在 但是 喜欢 呢 呢 呢 呢 呢 呢 呢 呢 呢. (Tā Xiànzài Xǐhuān Kàn Shū. Dànshì tā yǐ qián bùǐhuān ne.) – He likes to read books. It used no.
她 的 的, 但是 的 的, 但是 的 唱 得 的 不 呢 唱 唱 得 不 呢 唱 得 不 好 好 唱 唱 得 好 呢 Hi Kěyǐ. Dànshì tā Chàng by Bù hǎo ne.) – She sings pretty well, but he does not.
Bonus Council: When to use Chinese Ma particle instead of ne
if you \u0026 # 8217; It is a beginner in Chinese, it could be difficult for you to distinguish between 呢 (NE)and 吗 (mA).
吗 and 呢 are the two modal particles that are used to form questions, and beginners generally learn quite early, if they are not at the same time.
The key difference between these two particles is that it is used to ask yes-or -not questions, while 呢 is used to correspond them.
In other words, use the particle 吗 to ask a question like:
你 你 过 国国 吗? (Nǐ Qù guò zhōngguó ma?) – Been to China before?
And you / # 8217; D Use 呢 to answer that question as:
没 去 过.你 呢? (Méi Qù guò. Nǐ ne?) – I have not been. And you / and what about you? The key point here is that it can be used to ask the questions of itself or not, but it can be used to ask the person who asked a yes or no question. \u0026 nbsp; And that \u0026 # 8217; S Everything! Chinese particle 呢 is quite easy to learn, ISN \u0026 # 8217; T? Now that it has five newAs forms of using it, come out and practice.You \u0026 # 8217;You will find that you understand more native content, you can communicate at a deeper level with your friends or loved ones and sounds more like a native speaker!
