Hello! I am just wondering what is the difference between 住
zhù and 待
dāi? Do they both have the same meaning? to stay? thanks
Sorry for the late reply.
Larry is correct, 住 means live and 待 means stay or hang around.
And 待 has the same meaning as 呆 ( dāi )
Here are some examples:
She stays at home all day.
Do stay a little longer.
He lives with his parents.
I live in US.
Dear Min Min,
Thanks for example sentences in Chinese. It also helps me understand
待 and 住。 better.
I think, 待 means stay and 住 means live.
Where do you Zhu means where do you live. I ｌｉｖｅ ｉｎ ＵＳ ｅｔｃ． Ｂｕｔ， ｉｆ Ｉ visit some other towns or countries, the question will be where do you dai(待）。 I am sure, Min Min will give us correct answer.
Thanks for your explanation.
