On Topic questions

  1. Questions about the Chinese language: This includes, grammar, pronunciation, syntax, etc.

  2. Translation: From any language to Chinese as long as: (1) you provide research effort, without it your question will be closed. (2) you provide a detailed explanation of the original expression word. From Chinese to other languages, please refer to the target language site.

  3. Meaning of single word/hanzi: In case of a word (from bigram upwards), you can ask if you provided research effort in your question. In case of Hanzi, the same applies and you must provide also the sentence where you found the Hanzi.

Off Topic questions

  1. Culture: This site is about the Chinese language, not its culture. Questions about culture will be closed as Off Topic.

  2. Names: Questions about your name meaning or asking for help in choosing a name are not allowed.
