我们从商店买了两篮。 Wǒmen cóng shāngdiàn mǎile liǎng lán. We bought two baskets from the store.

买 mǎi / buy /

Oh how I perpetually confuse buy & sell (卖 mài / to sell ). I even wrote a post that kinda works to help remember which tone is which for buy vs sell.  You can use either in your example sentences below.

Translate 1 of these or write your own.

  • Did you buy the concert tickets for tomorrow?
  • Where did you buy that shirt? It's very nice.
  • All business is ultimately about buying and selling things.
  • Don't be so cheap! Go ahead and buy it, you know you will like it.

 

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

Hi,凯文

你买了明天的演唱会票吗?  

Nǐ mǎile míngtiān de yǎnchàng huì piào ma?

Did you buy concert tickets for tomorrow?

It would be more smooth to add the particle  de, thus

你买了明天的演唱会票吗? 

or use the le to show the complete of action, thus

你买了明天的演唱会票了吗? 

or

你买了明天演唱会票了吗?


你在哪儿买这衬衫吗?它是挺顺眼!

Nǐ zài nǎ'er mǎi zhè chènshān ma? Tā shì tǐng shùnyǎn!

Where did you  buy this shirt? It is very pleasing to the eye!

你在哪儿买这衬衫吗?它是挺顺眼!

Use 是。。。的 structure.

在哪儿买这衬衫?它是挺顺眼!

它是挺顺眼!Or 它看起来是挺顺眼的!

So

在哪儿买这衬衫它看起来是挺顺眼的!

Great work!







Thanks Shu, much appreciated!

I really like this sample sentence 它看起来是挺顺眼的!

谢谢你!

I'm kind of out of my league on this one.  I came up with a sentence that doesn't use 买 for "buying" in the "buying and selling."  Let me know if this is anywhere close:

生意到底关于购销。

Shēngyì dàodǐ guānyú gòuxiāo.

All business is ultimately about buying and selling things.

I left out the 东西 because it didn't seem necessary in the sentence I used. 

Hi Matt,

生意到底关于购销。

Shēngyì dàodǐ guānyú gòuxiāo.

All business is ultimately about buying and selling things.

I would say it as

生意终究是有关于买卖东西。

生意最终是有关于买卖东西。

Good job, nice try!

I rethought of your sentence. It is fine actually. More like written sentences, kind of unusual, but it is fine:)

You can add 物 to make it more natural and common. So,

生意到底关于购销

to

一切生意最终是关于购物销物。
