味 wèi / taste / flavor /

 

I learned this in class as 味儿 wèir and it was used similarly to the examples below, describing a person's writing style as having a Beijing 'flavor' or 'accent'. 京味儿 - Jīng wèir.  There's also another interesting use that you might want to write a sentence for: 对味儿 duì wèir / tasty / to one's liking /  

Additional examples via nciku:

他说起话来有一点京味儿,又有一点港味儿。
Tā shuōqǐhuàlái yǒu yìdiǎn jīngwèir,yòu yǒu yìdiǎn gǎngwèir。
He speaks a little Beijing dialect as well as a little Hong Kong dialect.

剩的饭菜已经变味儿,不能再吃了
Shèng de fàncài yǐjing biànwèir,bùnéng zài chī le。
The leftovers have gone bad, and cannot be eaten.

他说的这一番话,我听着有点不对味儿。
Tā shuō de zhè yì fān huà,wǒ tīng zhe yǒu diǎn búduìwèir。
I felt strange about what he said.
 

Now you should write an example sentence using this word in the comments below. Include 汉字, Pinyin & English if possible.

我们中学校的食堂菜已经变味儿了,因为他们用阴沟油做饭啦!好骗人的。

Wǒmen zhōngxué xiào de shítáng cài yǐjīng biàn wèir le, yīnwèi tāmen yòng yīngōu yóu zuòfàn la! Hǎo piànrén de.

Our middle school's cafeteria food has gone bad because they used gutter oil to cook! So deceitful. 

I´m sorry to hear that, fuyun...

 

but oh your sentence is very good! but it´s much more suitable to use 狡诈 for deceitful and cunning.

Keep up the good work, fuyun!

中国的菜在广州比中国的菜在上海尝不对味儿。

Zhōngguó de cài zài Guǎngzhōu bǐ Zhōngguó de cài zài Shànghǎi cháng bù duì wèir.

Chinese food in Guangzhou compared to Chinese food in Shanghai doesn't taste good.

Hey Thomas!

 

Awesome, nice job with trying to put up the sentence but it gets weird at last where you want to say "doesn't taste good"

when we say Shanghai dishes /  Guangzhou dishes / Beijing dishes we can say;

上海菜/ 广州菜/ 北京菜

 

and doesn't taste good (as for comparing) 没有那么好味儿

as compared to is  比

 

for your sentence, you can say

广州菜比上海菜没那么好味儿。

 

you'll get the hang of it soon, looking forward to see more of your sentences!

加油!继续努力! 圣诞节快乐!

译:恩施,一场盛大的馈赠

Enshi , A Grand GiftAuthor: Binhai Zhou   Translator: Jim Wu       恩施,这个名字听起来像守护着异域公主的勇士,勇敢与野性之外,略显黝黑的面庞还挂着几分令人心动的神秘和腼腆。寰行中国的车队刚一踏上这片土地,立刻惊艳得移不开目光。这里既有文明传绪的遗脉,也有大自然的馈赠。Enshi , sounds like a name of a warrior protecting an exotic princess, besides …See More
