The Chinese word “也” is a versatile word that can be translated to “also”, “too” or “as well”. It is commonly used to indicate that something is true or applicable in a similar way to something else that has been mentioned. For example, “我也喜欢吃中餐” means “I also like to eat Chinese food”, indicating that the speaker shares the same preference as someone else who has expressed their liking for Chinese food. The word “也” can also be used to form negative sentences, such as “我也不知道”, which means “I don’t know either”.
