{Personal pronoun} nho {Personal pronoun} yeu.


Explanation:
Vietnamese uses age and gender specific pronouns for the English "I" and "you" as below.

Man: Anh
Woman: Em

Thus for a man to a woman we would say
Anh nho em yeu. Lit. "I miss {my} love(r)."

For a woman to a man it would be
Em nho anh yeu. Lit. "I miss {my} love(r)."

There is no direct translation of the English "honey". "My love(r)" comes closest and is the one I hear used most often.

I hope that helps. If you want to know more, you can contact me directly at shane.wall@translingualexpress.com

Warm regards,
Shane

"Anh nhớ em cưng ạ" hoặc là " Em nhớ anh cưng ạ"


Explanation:
Tiếng Anh khác tiếng việt chúng ta ở chổ là :
- Tiếng anh không phân biệt giới tính, tuổi tác giữa ngôi thứ khi xưng hô với nhau.
Do đó, tùy từng ngữ cảnh mà chúng ta dịch sao cho thích hợp.
VD :- chàng nói với nàng : i love you honey thì chúng ta dịch là : Anh yêu em cưng ạ
- Còn nàng nói với chàng : i love you honey thì dịch là : Em nhớ anh cưng ạ
