NounEdit

作家

  1. author; writer
    喜歡作家沒有之一 [MSC, trad.]
    喜欢作家没有之一 [MSC, simp.]
    Tā shì wǒ zuì xǐhuān de zuòjiā, méiyǒu zhīyī. [Pinyin]
    She is my number-one favourite author.
  2. (archaic) connoisseur

Usage notesEdit

While writer and author can both be translated as 作家 (zuòjiā) or 作者 (zuòzhě) depending on the context, the former term can only refer to a writer who is relatively well-established, while the latter term can refer to any person who writes a text. 著者 (zhùzhě) shares the same meaning as 作者 (zuòzhě). 筆者笔者 (bǐzhě) is usually used self-reflexively.
