“Mei you” means “do not have”. for example: “wo mei you qian”, means “I don’t have money”.

“kan dian ying ba?” means “want to see movie?”.

I think that “Mei you” also means “no”. For example: wo mei you ni gao", means “I’m no taller than you”.

It’s just my understanding. Benny, please check it. Thx!

Hi, Cathyju. I think you should say “I’m not taller than you”, or “I’m shorter than you.”

Thanks,Tess Lynnette ! Maybe you are right.

“no more than” and “not more than” are quite similar. Yes, maybe I made a mistake.
