How Do You Say Have in Mandarin Chinese?
To learn Mandarin, it is very important to think like a native Mandarin speaker.
For example, when you want to ask for something in English, you may say “Could I have…or May I have…”. In Mandarin, the word for “have” is “yǒu”. One highly-used structure is “yǒu méi yǒu”. “méi yǒu”means “not have”. Literally, this structure means “ have or not have” . Let us hear some examples by using the words we have learned before.
- Yǒu méi yǒu pǐ jiǔ? Have any beer?
- Yǒu méi yǒu dǎ zhé? Have any discount?
- Yǒu méi yǒu chī fàn? Have you eaten?
