"Đây khuôn mặt của ai?"

Translation:Whose face is this ?

February 13, 2017



What's the difference between khuôn mặt & just mặt?


mặt is the general term for face. khuôn mặt means the facial appearance, shape, features.


It kinda looks like mặt is the physical 'thing' that is a person's face, whereas khuôn mặt seems like the way we recognize faces? The first being the concrete, the second being the abstract concept (something you can draw on vs something you dislike about a person). That's just my reading of it though - would also love to know the answer!
