The Chinese word 吐 means “to spit” or “to vomit”. It is commonly used to describe the act of forcefully expelling saliva or other substances from the mouth, or the act of throwing up due to illness or overindulgence. In informal contexts, 吐 can also be used to express disgust or disapproval towards something or someone. For example, one might say “我吐了” to indicate that they find something so unpleasant that it makes them want to vomit.
