Chinese FAQ

The word order in Chinese is similar to that of other languages like Cantonese (but different to European languages). The basic word order is Subject-Verb-Object. However, the order is often changed for emphasis or to add variety.

Here are some examples:

Subject - Verb - Object




我的朋友- 今天- 来了。

As you can see, the word order is different from many other languages, but it is not difficult to get used to. Just remember that the subject usually comes before the verb, and the object usually comes after the verb. You will also notice that there are no articles in Chinese. This can take a little getting used to, but it is not difficult once you get the hang of it.

Chinese can have a different word order when asking questions. In Mandarin, the question word (who, what, where, etc.) comes at the beginning of the sentence, followed by the subject and then the verb. For example:

Question word + Subject + Verb


什么是 图书馆?


In these cases, it's remembering that the question word comes at the beginning of the sentence, followed by the subject and then the verb.

There are other romanisation systems for Chinese, but pinyin is by far the most common. It was developed in the 1950s and is based on the pronunciation of Mandarin Chinese. Pinyin is used to help people learn and pronounce Mandarin Chinese, as well as to write Chinese characters using a keyboard, look things up in a dictionary and learn how to speak Chinese.
