how do i use in Chinese_l

In English, certain words can have many different applications, depending on their use in a sentence or the meaning the speaker wants to convey. For example, the English word “hand” can be used in a sentence to indicate a positive skill (“He can fix any machine; he’s very handy”) or a negative assessment (“That was a very underhanded action on your part; I had no idea you could be so dishonest”).

Similarly, the Chinese word for “hand” (手, shŏu) can be used to indicate a method of writing (写作手法, xiě zuò shǒu fǎ) or the act of breaking up with your girlfriend (分手, fēn shǒu).
