Mandarin Chinese (language)

Mandarin Chinese is a language that belongs to the Sino-Tibetan language family. In Mandarin Chinese, words like Tounao (头脑 · tóunǎo) are related to mental activity or other psychological processes. To transcribe the Mandarin Chinese language from speech to writing, scripts (writing systems) like Han (Hanzi, Kanji, Hanja) are used.

For example, the sentence below utilizes both the Mandarin Chinese language and Han (Hanzi, Kanji, Hanja) script:

我只会赞美智慧之主
Wǒ zhǐ huì zànměi zhìhuì zhī zhǔ
I will only praise the lord of wisdom
