“I mean” in Chinese is “我的意思是……“ I take it. But what if I wanted to use it more casually, as an interjection — to further narrow down or elaborate on something I said before?
“We’re late – I mean, if we don’t go right now, the movie is going to be over by the time we arrive"
“You can’t be serious? – I mean, You would have to live with the consequences for the rest of your life!”
How would you translate “I mean” in such a scenario? I mean – there is a translation for this, no?
