Learn Mandarin Online from Teachers and Students
The words 借 (jiè), 借给 (jiègěi) and 跟…借 (gēn…jiè) in Mandarin Chinese are all used to talk about borrowing and lending. Whilst English has separate words for “to borrow” and “to lend” , Mandarin Chinese just has 借 to cover both senses of money ( or object ) flow. Which one it means depends on how the sentence is structured. A nice posting on this subject is at this link:
