? What Do You Know About "For Sale" in Chinese?
As told above, the word “For Sale” can be translated contextually into “付费的 (fù fèi de)” or “出售的 (chū shòu de)” in Simplified Chinese, with a close relationship with each.
The first Chinese character “付 (fù)” here means to pay, and so does the character “出 (chū)” appearing in the second Chinese translation. Another character “售 (shòu)” in the second translation means to sell.
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.
Furthermore, the ending Chinese character “的 (de)” here 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 “Free” in Chinese as “免费 (miǎn fèi)” for the word “For sale”.
