I know when it comes to names, it's pronounced "he" in "何", but my question is what about the regular:


I think it should be "han" in "漢", but some people say "he", so my question is what is the correct way to pronounce.

  • You'll hear hàn in Taiwan, but hé virtually everywhere else.

"han" is the informal pronunciation of 和 in Taiwan. In mainland China nobody pronunces it as "han"


I only heard some folks from Taipei have said 我han4你 to mean 我和(he2)你.

In standard mandarin, 和 is pronounced as he2.
