Hi,

Could anyone tell me when to use 'bù' and when 'méi'?

I mean, I learned that both mean something like 'not', as in BU SHUO, BU HUI, BU DONG etc.

But why is it MEI YOU, MEI TING, and probably some other examples?

regards,

Marcel

Hi Marcel, this is explained in the QingWen When to use 没有, When to use 不.
