2: 二; Pinyin: Èr
The number two generally symbolizes someone or something that is “paired,” which makes it a very positive number. This is because Chinese people often find loneliness to be very undesirable. Additionally, the number is employed as an adjective or a verb in northern Chinese provinces to mean “stupid” and/or “silly.”
The Mandarin spelling and pronunciation for the number two is “er,” and the Cantonese version is “ji.” The most common sound-alike for the number two is “love,” which makes sense, because of the Chinese attraction to things that are paired.
- The noun sound-alike for the number two is: son, ear, emu, thus, pearl, caviar, and aunt (in Cantonese).
- The conjunctive sound-alike for the number two is: and (in Cantonese).
