    1. Hi Jorge,
      In Chinese, we do not have singular or plural form for noun.
      牙齿 can be tooth or teeth. I hope I am not wrong to use tooth in this context.

  1. Hi Min Min

    气味 means smell. I think the verb is siu or xiu.
    [to smell] I can’t seem to find the Chinese character
    for siu or xiu.

    For example, 我 siu or xiu 到了腐烂的鸡蛋. What is the
    character for siu or xiu.

    But there is also another for “to smell’ is 闻
