Say It Right Series


Posted by watyamacallit July 15, 2011 in the Group I Have a Question.

I have come across a number of words which include 买 or 卖, and all seem to mean buy or sell:

买 - mǎilái

买到 - mǎidào

买进 - mǎijìn

买下 - mǎixià

购买 - gòumǎi

卖掉 - màidiào

卖给 - màigěi

出卖 - chūmài

售卖 - shōumài

What is the difference between these words (and the one-character versions)?
