A few words about the Chinese language
Chinese is the official language in People’s Republic of China and Republic of China or Taiwan; it is also recognised as a minority language in countries like Singapore, Philippines, Malaysia and United States. Chinese, which is one of the official languages of the United Nations, has seven to 13 major groups like Mandarin, Wu, Cantonese and Min. It is characterized by internal variety and most of its groups do not have words having the same meaning.
The Chinese language is a tone one, which means that a similar syllable having a different tone can be different word in itself. Mandarin for example has four tones, while Cantonese uses nine and other Chinese dialects have more. Figuring out the pronunciation of the language from its written form is very difficult, albeit its meaning is easier to presume because the written character is actually a pictogram.
Chinese verbs do not alter according to tenses. It uses adverbs to indicate time. When we say “I went to the market”, they say “I go to the market” and to denote time they use “before”, “already” or “yesterday”.
