  • Na [then/in that case]那【Na has multiple meanings. Here it means in that case. Sometimes it means there, in most cases it means that.】
  • ni[you] 你
  • KanKan [take a look]看看
  • Nabian [that side/over there]那边
  • you meiyou[there is or isn’t] 有没有. 【ABA is a common verb in Chinese, it indicates a yes or no question. Sometimes we say [Zuo meiZuo = did it, or didn’t do it.], [Shuo meiShuo = said it, or didn’t say it.], [gei meigei = give it, or didn’t give.]】
  • [Nar nee KanKan Narbyan yomayyo.]

In that case, you take a look at that section, see if you can find it. 【you meiyou 有 没有】is part of the objective clause. And the object is [That place has not has].

  • nimen [you] 你们
  • Zhe [here] 这
  • you [have/there is]有

  • ma吗?
  • [howde. neemen Dser yo sheeyee Dswartung muh?]
