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:
Tā shuōqǐhuàlái yǒu yìdiǎn jīngwèir，yòu yǒu yìdiǎn gǎngwèir。
He speaks a little Beijing dialect as well as a little Hong Kong dialect.
Shèng de fàncài yǐjing biànwèir，bùnéng zài chī le。
The leftovers have gone bad, and cannot be eaten.
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.
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!
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.
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
you'll get the hang of it soon, looking forward to see more of your sentences!
