Chinese Modal Particles The function of modal particles is to help the speaker express his or her mood and attitude towards the content of the utterance. Modal particles play crucial roles in the oral communication of Mandarin Chinese. Appropriate use of them will enable you to convey your emotions, feelings and other paralinguistic information accurately. However, your sentence may sound incomplete and the meaning might also become vague and unclear if you omit them. The most frequently used modal particles in Mandarin Chinese include å•Š (Ä), å‘¢ (ne), å— (ma), å§ (ba), Ã§š„ (de), Ã¤º† (le) and å•¦ (lÄ). In most cases, they are added to the end of a sentence, but occasionally they are also placed within a sentence to form a purposeful verbal pause. They cannot be translated, as there is no direct English equivalent of the above seven Chinese modal particles. To most Mandarin learners, modal particles are confusing and very difficult to use.
