父親 - Father

Today's chinese word of the day is 父親 which means father.

In mandarin 父親 is pronounced fùqīn. Note in pinyin (using english letters to represent chinese pronunciation) the letter q is pronounced as a strong ch sound.

Another name for father is 爸爸 which is pronounced bàba and is a bit more informal. This form is more commonly used when speaking to young children. Similar to the english word daddy.
