Q 1. Interesting Chinese Sentence
When you learn Chinese, you might
find a very interesting thing about this language. The
sentence order sometimes is the key thing to understand the
meaning, rather than the verbal inflection.
For example, see the following
You can see that all the words in the
two sentences are 100% the same, but the meaning is totally
different. According to the sentence order, the first sentence talks about "take a plane" first,
then "go to Shanghai". On the contrary, the
second sentence talks about "go to Shanghai" first, and then
"take a plane". So exactly like what it shows obviously, the
first sentence means "I will take a airplane to go to
Shanghai." And the second sentence means "I will go to
Shanghai to take the airplane."
Let us see another
All the words are also the same, but
with different orders. The first sentence talks about
"American" first, then "one university". Literally it means
"in Ameirca, one university." So it is talking about "one
university in America". The second sentence talks about "one"
first, then "American university". Literally it means "one
American university". It is talking about "one American
university", but not have to be in the U.S., it might be an
American university in London.
After all, we can say, Chinese is a
very logical language. When you learn it, please pay attention
to the sentence order. Youwill understand the context better
based on it.
