2 thoughts on “双”

  1. Hh Min Min

    她 有 双 重 国 籍. In this sentence I hear the pinyin
    of 重 as “zhoon” (sounds like 从)

    In this “他 现 在 的 体 重 是 过 去 的 双 倍”, I hear the
    pinyin of 重 as “chung”

    Has 重 got two sounds in pinyin as the two above?

    1. Hi Βωων Κυαν,
      重 has 2 pronunciations.
      One is zhòng, which means weight or heavy.
      Another is chóng, which means repeat or overlap.

      In this sentence, it should be pronounced as chóng. I have corrected the mistake.
      Thanks.
