Question: How would you translate "Fifty altogether, I suppose" into Chinese (Mandarin). Would this make sense: 一共五十吧 Or would you have to put: 一共五十本吧 (the context is books but can this be left out seeing at the previous sentance already made it clear that the conversation was about books?) For some reason I'm finding this little sentance tricky. Thanks in advance for your help :)

I think 一共五十本吧 is better. 一共五十吧 sounds more like 'fifty bucks altogether' even though a context where books are involved is provided. However, both 一共五十吧 and 一共五十本吧 should be translated as "Fifty altogether, I suppose?"(a question) instead of "Fifty altogether, I suppose." (an assertion). If you are to expression an assertion which you are not very sure of, I would say something like "总共应该是五十本". Hope that helps

我明天准备看电影。 Chinese always indicate the day as the subject first followed by a verb then object. As in “那天我不小心滑倒在地上” Na Tian Wo Bu Xiao Xin Hua Dao Zai Di Shang. I accidentally fall on to the floor that day. 那天 is the subject, 滑倒 is the verb and 地上 is the object. The pattern is SVO for short; which is somewhat similar to English. 2) 你待会儿准备跳舞吗?

1. wo ming tian zhun bei kan dian ying = tomorrow i am preparing to watch a movie p.s. person below me is right this could also be ming tian wo zhun bei kan dian ying but my sentence is not incorrect whichever you prefer or wo zhun bei ming tian kan dian ying = i am preparing to watch a movie tomorrow 2. ni zhun bei tiao wu ma? 3. i yao zi ji zhu (this one is kind of bad it just means i'm going to live by myself, the only other way i can think of to say it is like i'm leaving this house and its like separating in a violent way) 4. i zui hen ne ge guang gao

hmm..for #4, maybe u can say "wo tao yian ne ge guang gao" i'm not sure if i'm spelling pinyin right. in reply to Jenny's #1, i don't think you can start with "wo ming tian....." i think it sounds awkward, basically as if you were saying "i tomorrow...." unless you do "ming tian wo....."

There is no "one" way to say anything in chinese, ever wondered why theres five different ways to say the same word in chinese??? What matters if people can understand it. But thats for you to decide.
