How to say: Yes or No

Maybe you've already read that one of the meaning of is "yes, right" and that one of the meaning of is "used alone as a negative answer". Anyway, about this simple subject, more must be said.

The most common way of simply and politely answering yes in Chinese is by repeating the main element (verb or adjective) of the question's predicate, or its negative form if you want to answer no.

Example

question: 认识

answer 1: 认识 (meaning: Yes, I do)

answer 2: 认识 (meaning: No, I don't)
