IPA|[ ai ]
- to love; to be fond of.
When used for people, Ã i usually refers to romantic love. When used like this, older Mandarin speakers often describe the use of this term as overly èéº» (rÃ²umÃ¡, adj. something that gives you the creeps, disgusting). For this reason, the word zh-ts|åæ¡|åæ¬¢ (xÇhuÄn, to like) might be used instead. Using the word xÇhuÄn literally means like, but when used in a romantic context (especially boyfriend/girlfriend), it actually means love. However, younger Mandarin speakers seem to have been influenced somewhat by Western culture, and are now using the verb Ã i much more often than was socially acceptable in the past.
