hôm (day) +‎ nay (this; now).



hôm nay

  1. today (on the current day)
    Synonym: bữa nay

Usage notes[edit]

  • In fast and informal speech, hôm is often reduced to a barely audible syllabic nasal or completely ellipsed, so that only nay can be heard. Similar phenomenon can also be seen with hôm qua (yesterday).
  • Note that although ngày is the normal word for "day" in Vietnamese, ngày nay means "nowadays", not "today".
