speak chinese like a native

呢 ne VS 吗 ma

Posted by YantaiGuy May 27, 2007 in the Group General Discussion.

I've been living here in Yantai for almost 6 months now, andmy wife, who is Chinese but speaks pretty good english, hasn't been able to explain the difference between 呢 and 吗 apart from to not say "ni ma" because it's rude.

 

Could someone give me a more academic explanation, or a working definition to help me understand this strange little character?
