Basically, "一些" -> "some" "一点" -> "a little", often use with uncountable nouns. "有些", short for "有一些", can mean "have some" or "there are/is some" (You know in Chinese "own sth." and "sth. exist" using the same word "有"). It is the same with "有点". The hard part is, do you need "有" in your sentence? Here are some examples: 有些事情群众能做,我们领导干部不能做。——江泽民 There ...

Mainly "一点/有点" should be used with a adjective or a adverb. If it being used with a noun, may means other things. for example, you can say: "我有点饿了,再走快一点!", but you should NOT say "一点人/有点字典". while "一些/有些" can be used with both sorts. you can say :"我有些饿了,再走快一些吧!", and you can say also: "有些人、一些字典". Not seriously, I would say: 一点 = a little 有点 = some 一些 = ...

Whether they are interchangeable or not depend on the situation. You have to consider the meaning of word, if it is not suitable to change then you cannot change. 我有一些餅乾。you can change 一些 to 一點 however you cannot change 一些 to 有些 or 有的. In this situation, 有些 and 有的 are not suitable because 有些 and 有的 show the property of portion of all but not whole. 一些 and ...

yes, I think the majority of the time, they are interchangeable. 一些/一点/有些/有的 + Noun = a little + Noun (uncountable nouns, right?) Here, nouns can be countable nouns as well. Hope it helps :)

Question: Is there any distinction between 二倍 and 两倍? It actually comes down to situational preference and the distinction is marginal at best. Other contributors have already made some pointers. However, I just wish to add that:- (1) when making a general dimensional comparison, 两倍 is preferred; such as 两倍大, (twice as big), and 两倍多, (more than double) ...

二倍 is more formal. eg. (in a government annual report)由于一系列利好政策,今年我市税收达到去年的二倍。 两倍 is more oral. The examples is too many. 我的饭量是你的两倍。 这支基金净值已经增长了两倍。 The meanings are equal actually because 2 = 两.

This is a very good question. Both could mean "usually", "commonly", "generally", "expectedlly", "mostly" Not only could the two phrases be used interchangeably in quite a lot of situations, it could also, like a chameleon, change from one to the other depending on the structure of the sentence itself. An example:- (1) 男人先开口求婚是平常的, (It's common / usual ...

Q.1 The way 交通 is used in the past may be different from what we use nowadays, it is mainly used in describing traffic. However, if you read from old chinese literature, 交通 can be used in describing roads that are connected or linked such as “阡陌交通” from 陶渊明《桃花源记》. It may also be describing figurative speech such as "山川涸落,天气下,地气上,万物交通" from 《管子·度地》which ...

You may see 谦虚好学 and 虚心求教 are having the same meaning, but in fact it is not. 谦虚 and 虚心 both means modest but the usage is slightly different. 谦虚: When people are giving you a compliment / asking you for advice, you are showing a quality self-cultivation which do not behave arrogant, sees other as equal. 虚心: When you are asking other people for advice, ...

My two cents. In the word 谦虚好学, 谦虚 can be replaced by 虚心 and change to 虚心好学. Both 谦虚好学 and 虚心好学 are accepted words with the same meaning. However, in the word 虚心求教, 虚心 can not be replaced by 谦虚. It does not sound right. I think, although both 谦虚 and 虚心 have the meaning of being modest, 谦虚 has an extra layer of humility, being humble, a trait ascribed to ...

From some www.newxue.com: 虚心和谦虚都是形容词,它们都含有“不自满,不骄傲”的意思。但是组成两个词的成份不同,意义和用法也就有所区别。 虚心,是由“虚”和“心”组成,表示能够接受别人的意见,肯向别人学习。 谦虚,是由“谦”和“虚”组成,表示态度好,不骄傲;另外作动词时是指说谦虚的话。 例如: 1.少先队小干部都要虚心听取同学们的意见。 “听取意见”时需要不骄傲,要有“接受”的心意,对意见要有正确的认识,所以表示听取意见时用“虚心”而不用“谦虚”。 2.小明谦虚地说:“你们别夸我了,我做得还很差。” “你们别夸我了……”这句话表示不骄傲的态度,所以须用“谦虚”而不是“虚心”。 3.他谦虚了一番,...
