? What Do You Know About "Free" in Chinese?
The word “Free” has many meanings in the context and so does the word in the Chinese language. If it works as the meaning of “free-of-charge”, it means “免费的 (Miǎn fèi de)” in Chinese. The first Chinese character “免 (miǎn)” here means to remove or exempt something.
The second Chinese character “费 (fèi)” means various payments like charge, cost, fee, expenses, etc. Please note the bottom radical (the Chinese character component, similar to the root of an English word) which is called “The Shell/Money Radical”. Mostly a Chinese word containing the shell/money radical will have a similar meaning related to money.
What’s more, the third character “的 (de)” in the end works as an auxiliary at the end of a Chinese word to mostly mark the word as an adjective part of the speech, although it has many other complex usages in the Chinese language. Check out the opposite word “For Sale” in Chinese as “付费的 (fù fèi de)” or “出售的 (chū shòu de)” for the word “free of charge”.
