In the textbook, I read this: 67.5读作六十七点五.

Question: What's the role of 读作? Why 读作 is there?



You can replace 读作 with 'read as'

The sentence can be translated as: 67.5 reads as 六十七点五

Meaning: is read as

e.g. (a number) is read as something.


Don't mix it up with 叫做. 叫做 refers to names, 读作 refers to language.

  • ps To be precise, 读作 refers to words or sentences. – Kiddy Jun 9 '14 at 3:54
