There is no Chinese alphabet. Chinese is composed of characters, many many thousands of them, and a great deal of them are never used. In everyday usage, about 4500 characters may be used, which is less than a tenth of the total number of Chinese characters.

Chinese characters may be pronounced in different ways, and do not indicate precisely the sound, so, over the area of China, you get different people pronouncing the characters in their own local dialects. Countries such as Japan and Korea who still use Chinese characters have borrowed the sounds of the characters many centuries ago, and they have their own naturalised pronunciation of them.

I went to china this summer and really liked the music, and at some of the internet cafes, all of the music had http://music.zsnet.com attached to the title. If that site has free downloads, could somebody give me a link to that section or instructions on how to get there? thanks

1. Good good study, day day up.

Actually, Hao hao xue xi (literally: good good study/learn) means "study hard/well" and tian tian shang (day day up) I have no idea...

2. Don't old three old four.

O_O;; I don't think I've heard that one before.

3. Look and look, see and see.

Kan-yi-kang is like "take a cursory look"; quick glance. (IE: When you're shopping and the person with you wants to go in but you don't and they go "we'll just take a glance! We'll be out in a sec!")

4. People mountain people sea.

O.o;; I don't think we're thinking the same thing.

5. You really have two down sons.

For this one, either. I don't think I've ever heard this one.

Someone said something to me in chinese, I don't know the correct spelling, but it sounds like this:

wooshani (woo-sha-knee)

and

Showwoohow (show (like shout without the t) woo-how)

someone please tell me what this means!

also how do you say and write (in cantonese):

Frank,

you are very special to me and I will miss you very much, if I'm lucky, maybe I'll get my chance to be with you........one day.

I know I Love You can be translated to Wo Ai Ni in Mandarin but, I don't know if this is said in a general manner or intimate. How could I say I love you in a (woman to man situation) also, if I was to say, I love you too, would that be a different word or "wo ai ni" fits all as a response?

Lastly, can anyone tell me how to say, i miss you, good night & good morning?

Hi everyone,
I desperately need to know how to say 'good night' and 'good morning' in Chinese. I would really appreciate if you could write the pronounciation in English letters.
Thanks.
