/ 有 yǒu Have /
有 yǒu means "to have" in Chinese and is used quite frequently. In the negative form, it collocates with 没 méi instead of 不 bù. Both 没 méi and 不 bù mean the same thing, "no" or "not". As a general rule, 没 méi tends to be used with having something, such as an object or an experience, whereas 不 bù is used more with direct actions.Example sentences: 你 有 本子 吗? Do you have a notebook?
