Chinese word: 嘴硬 (zuǐ yìng)

"嘴硬" (zuǐ yìng) literally means a tough mouth. It is used to describe a person who knows his or her own faults, but is reluctant to admit.

“嘴硬”的字面意义是嘴巴很硬。用来形容明知自己错了,但是嘴上却不承认。

Examples:

1. tā zuǐ yìng de hěn, yì shēng dōu bú huì chéng rèn tā cuò le.

他嘴硬得很,一生都不会承认他错了。

He is so stubborn that he has never admitted his own mistakes all his life.

2. Wǒmen yǐ jīng zhǎng wò le zú gòu de zhèng jù, tā zuǐ yìng yě méi yǒu yòng.

我们已经掌握了他犯罪的足够证据,他嘴硬也没有用。

It's useless for him to refuse to admit his guilt, because we've had enough evidence on hands.
