It can refer to the feeling between people, and their connection. The traditional Chinese character for love consists of a heart (middle ) inside of "accept, "feel," or "perceive " which shows a graceful emotion.
In contemporary Chinese language and culture, several terms or root words are used for the concept of love: It was the first name of the Qing emperor.
Ai is used as a verb (e.g., Wo ai ni, "I love you") or as a noun, especially in aiqing , "love" or "romance." In mainland China since 1949, airen (originally "lover," or more literally, "love person") is the dominant word for "spouse" (with separate terms for "wife" and "husband" originally being de-emphasized); the word once had a negative connotation, which it retains among many in Taiwan.
Lian is not generally used alone, but instead as part of such terms as "being in love" (tan lian'ai—also containing ai), "lover" (lianren) or "homosexuality" ( tongxinglian). Qing, commonly meaning "feeling" or "emotion," often indicates "love" in several terms. It is contained in the word aiqing; qingren is a term for "lover."
