Chinese punctuation

中文标点符号

Chinese punctuation adopts a different set of punctuation marks and rules of using punctuation from English to organize modern written Chinese. Traditional poetry and calligraphy maintains the punctuation-free style.

与英文不同,中文采用不同的标点符号和标点符号使用方法来规划现代书面汉语。 传统汉语诗歌和书法保持无标点符号的格式。

All Chinese characters are written to a uniform size, and this size also extends to punctuation marks, so Chinese punctuation marks usually take up more space than their English counterparts.

所有的汉字都是统一大小,所有中文标点符号也都是统一大小,因此中文标点符号通常比英文标点符号占用更多空间。

Common Chinese Punctuation Marks

常用中文标点符号

Here are the most commonly used Chinese punctuation marks:

以下是最常用的中文标点符号:

1.  Full Stop 句号

The Chinese full stop句号 (jù hào) is a small circle that takes the space of one Chinese character.

It is used to indicate the completion of a simple sentence, complex sentence or shortened sentence.

中文的句号(jùhào)是一个占据一个汉字空间的小圆圈。

它用于表示一个简单句子,复杂句子或短句已结束。

Here are example:例句如下:

Please help me to buy a cup of coffee.

请你帮我买一杯咖啡。

It is getting cold, we should wear more clothes.

天气渐渐冷了,要穿的衣服也多了。

Who did this? She.

谁做的?她。

2. Comma 逗号

The Mandarin name of the Chinese comma is 逗号 (dòu hào). The function is the same as the English comma to indicate pauses or to separate clauses within a sentence.

Chinese comma的普通话名称是逗号(dòuhào)。 中文逗号的功能与英文逗号相同,在句子中都用于表示暂停或将从句从主句中分隔开。

Here are some examples: 例句如下:

If it does not rain, we will go to the park.

如果不下雨,我们就去公园。

3. Enumeration Comma 顿号

The enumeration comma (dunhao) is used to separate list items in a sentence. The listed items are usually in the same category. Chinese do not use commas in this situation which is different from English. It is the same function as “and”.

顿号(dunhao)用于分隔句子中同类的并列内容。 罗列出的内容通常在同一类别中。 在此情况下中文与英语不同,不使用逗号。 顿号与“和”的功能相同。

In the basket, there are apples, pears, peaches and strawberry.

在篮子里,有苹果、梨子、桃子和草莓。

4. Colon 冒号

Modern Chinese borrowed the use of colon 冒号(mao hao) from European language. The writing looks quite similar, but they have a slight difference. The Chinese colon “ :”, the two dots are closer than the colon “:” in European language.

现代中文对于冒号(mao hao)的使用方法是从欧洲语言借鉴而来。 中文和欧洲语言对于冒号的写法看起来很相似,但其中存在微小的差别。 中文冒号写做“:”,这两个点比欧洲语言中的冒号“:” 挨的更近。

The most common use of the colon is to inform the reader that what follows the colon proves, explains, or lists elements of what preceded it. For example, one can use a colon after an independent clause to direct attention to a list, an appositive, or a quotation.

冒号最常见的用途是告诉读者冒号后面的内容证明,解释或列出了之前的哪些内容。 例如,作者可以在独立从句后使用冒号将读者注意力引向一个列举的从句,同位语或引用语。

Mr. Wang pointed out that if you want to study well, you have to work hard and think more.

王老师指出:“要想学习好,一是努力,二是多思考。”

5. Question Mark 问号

The question mark 问号(wenhao)is pretty much the same as in English which is used as an indicator of a question sentence. However, it can also be used for indirect question.

中文问号(wenhao)与英文问号几乎相同,都用于表示一个句子是问句。 但其也可以用于间接问句。

For example: 例句如下:

Did you go to school?

你去了学校么?

Whether or not he has interest? It is the most important question.

他有没有兴趣?这是最重要的问题。

6. Double Angle Quote 书名号

The double angle quote 书名号 (shuminghao)are used outside the name of a book, movie, play, newspaper, magazine,etc.

书名号(shuminghao)用在电影,戏剧,报纸,杂志等名称之外

For example: 例如:

Movie Mission Impossible

电影《碟中谍/不可能的任务》
