Question

​What are ways to say "to show" in Chinese?

Andras Chonn Andras Chonn (1) on 30/09/13

The main meaning is "to demonstrate" or "to have someone see", which would be transitive.

How would you translate, for example:

- I want to show you the truth.

- Can I show you my music collection?

- Can you show me how to get to the concert?

There's also an intransitive meaning as in "to be visible".

How would you translate, for example:

- Your anger is starting to show.

- The results from all his years of hard work are beginning to show.
