Description and Examples

Dialogue 50

A:
老师
B:
⋯⋯
A:
老师学生⋯⋯
B:
老师父亲
A:
谢谢

The meaning of: “您是⋯⋯”

It means "Who are you?" (literally "You are...") The hearer should respond with her name or social status. Such a sentence is used only when a stranger has started to speak to you.

Caution: "?" is a rather impolite inquiry. So normally one avoids asking a stranger "?"
