Well you got the love you bit right, but not the word I.

Should read:I love you:䈤你

Chinese Pinyin: wo3 ai4 ni3

^^ I'm guessing the tonality or pitch of the phoneme, and are you going to tell a girl that you love her!? That's pretty adventerous! ;)

lol, no. My friend, who speaks Chinese, told me how to say it. When I saw the words, it sounded formiliar.

They're tones. 3 is a dipping, down then up tone. 4 is a sharply falling tone.

I speak cantonese.
"\" doesn't mean "I"
"\" , as I know , has a same pronunciation with ""
and "" is a old fanshion chinese which mean "you".
It just like Shakespeare words in English. It is a very old fanshion Chinese that people no longer use in daily life.

huayue it means "花月"(花好月圆)

That's an awesome name for a gal,it literately means " lovely flowers full moon " LOVELY FLOWERS under the FULL MOON.

By the way,my Chinese first name is Kanji word for LOVE with the Chinese character FEMALE/GIRL to the left of it.My pop was quite creative naming me,I haven't met any Chinese with this " unique " name to this day.

Aiko is my Japanese romaji spelling.

Glenn
Jun 22, 2006, 02:58
愛子? When you said "love" and "girl" I thought 愛女.

ricecake
Jun 22, 2006, 03:05
愛子?

When you said "love" and "girl" I thought 愛女.



Yeah,that's my Japanese name in Kanji.

My Chinese name has these two lovely characters,FEMALE/GIRL first then LOVE.

Both me and sis have the FEMALE/GIRL character to our name,hers is FEMALE/GIRL SWALLOW ( bird ).

Glenn
Jun 22, 2006, 03:24
So is your name Zǐ&#224;i (子愛), and your sister's Zǐyān (子燕)?

ricecake
Jun 22, 2006, 07:01
So is your name Zǐ&agrave;i (子愛), and your sister's Zǐyān (子燕)?



No ... No ...

This Kanji character means " child/boy " in Chinese oppose to " ko " for Japanese,use FEMALE/GIRL instead.

You got my sis's first name ( swallow ) right.

We write it as ONE WORD.

yes , '' write in one character is QH often used in girl's name.

I didn't know that the right part of Q is ... ^^;;;

In Japan, there's a prefecture called QiЂ߁j, sounds like a lot of love there, eh. xD

Anyway, very cute names, you guys. :wave:

Q

Glenn
Jun 22, 2006, 16:00
Well, it isn't, really. The right side is the Chinese simplified version of 愛, which is 爱. It actually means "lead on to; therefore; then", according to Jim Breen's online kanji dictionary.

Hello admin/moderator, I hope that this isn't to off topic.

Ah how about learning the phrase "I love you" in diffrent languages
in Swedish it's spelled: "Jag &#228;lskar dig"
Other romantic swedish phrases (hope I spelled that right):
"Du betyder allt f&#246;r mig" - You mean everything to me
"N&#228;r jag t&#228;nkter p&#229; dig blir jag varm" I get all warm when I'm thinking of you

Anyone want some more Swedish phrases?

Kyoko_desu
Jun 27, 2006, 13:01
OK, I know how to say "I love you." in Polish.
It's "Kocham cie." I learned it from a very good chat friend of mine a couple of years ago.
Oh I miss him, he can't come online for a while becuase he quit school and had to join the army. I just hope he is doing fine there... U_U

This is the Chinese Language forum, so please keep discussions to the Chinese language.

If you want, you can start a thread in the Chit Chat & Miscellaneous (http://www.wa-pedia.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=15) forum about how to say "I love you" and similar phrases in different world languages.

probably,"\" is I in wu or cantanese

actually, chinese is universally written the same. exactly the same. any literate chinese person can communicate with any other chinese person (even if they are speaking in another dialect) by writing.

Jul 19, 2007, 17:31
well,i heard that in northeast of China if a girl likes a boy,she usually asks him "你稀罕我不,反正我是挺稀罕你的" .That means,"do you love me?anyway, i love you." ,but that's more funny than"我爱你"。

it's the pernounciation thing, because every word with the same romaji or whatever you call that. has four pernounciations, so those numbers indicate which pernounciation it is , so when you say it, others won't mistaken it for another word


This thread is awesome!
yeah, huayue, I'm starting to feel so happy too, to see everyone says "I love you"... xD
hey, you guys, "Wo ai niiiii", too~ xD
(how do you say, "i love you too" in chinese??)
Besides, I also want to hear it in other languages! (...then would it be off topic??)

"wo ye ai ni"
is how you say i luv you too in chinese

very nice topic, to me.
I travelled a lot in japan and love this country, but my heart goes to a native Beijing girl. We don't use cantonese or any old fashion way for those words. Just the 3 words (with a "ye" when a reply comes).
:cool:
