按呢

Usage notes[edit]

  • When used as an adverb, Min Nan 按呢 corresponds to Mandarin 這麼这么 (zhème, “in this way”), but more in the sense of Mandarin 如此 (rúcǐ, “like this”). As such, Min Nan 按呢 can be placed at the end of a phrase, as can Mandarin 如此, whereas Mandarin 這麼/这么 must be followed by an adjective or verb.

Synonyms[edit]

  • (Min Nan) 按呢生 (án-ne-seⁿ/án-ne-siⁿ)
  • (Mandarin) 這麼这么 (zhème, “in this way”), 如此 (rúcǐ, “like this”)
