Mandarin Chinese (#2.3C)

I find it incredibly difficult to say the Mandarin word for "person," which is necessary if you want to say that someone is Chinese (literally: China person) or American (literally: America person, or even more literally: Beautiful country, person) or any other nationality.

No, I am not acquainted with your friend, but I am acquainted with his wife.

His wife is Chinese, yeah?

No, his wife is American.
