Pronouns: the verb “to be” complements “teacher” or “business person”
|我是老师。Wǒ shì lǎoshī||I am a teacher|
|你是商人。Nǐ shì shāngrén||You are a business person|
|您是老师。Nín shì lǎoshī||You are a teacher|
|他是商人。Tā shì shāngrén||He is a business person|
|她是老师。Tā shì lǎoshī||She is a teacher|
|我们是商人。Wǒmen shì shāngrén||We are business people|
|你们是老师。Nǐmen shì lǎoshī||You all are teachers|
|他们是商人。Tāmen shì shāngrén||They are business people|
老 lǎo means old, but this must be further read into. Firstly, it is used to refer to people, never ‘things’. Secondly, it is often used with other characters to form titles which carry authority, such as 老师 lǎoshī teacher.
People understand that 老 lǎo takes on a positive meaning that old doesn’t carry in our culture. Since 老lǎo specifically refers to people and never to things, we can translate it as being equivalent to senior, an NCEA English word that means “aged” with the more positive connotation of “having greater authority”.
商 shāng means business, and 人 rén means person or people, therefore 商人 shāngrén means “business person”.
Pronouns, the verb “to be” and the noun complements “man” and “woman”:
|你是男人。Nǐ shì nánrén||You are a man|
|你是女人。Nǐ shì nǚrén||You are a woman|
|他是男人。Tā shì nánrén||He is a man|
|她是女人。Tā shì nǚrén||She is a woman|
|他们是男人。Tāmen shì nánrén||They are men|
|她们是女人。Tāmen shì nǚrén||They are women|
You often find Woman 女 nǚ and man 男 nán being used independently as abbreviations on forms.
