Categories with terms that were calqued from Mandarin, i.e. terms formed by piece-by-piece translations of Mandarin terms.

To categorize a term into a language-specific subcategory, use {{cal|destcode|cmn|source_term}} (or {{clq|...}} or {{calque|...}}, using the same syntax), where destcode is the language code of the language in question (see Wiktionary:List of languages), and source_term is the source-language term that the term in question was borrowed from.

This is an umbrella category. It contains no dictionary entries, but only other, language-specific categories, which in turn contain relevant terms in a given language.
