没关系 (沒關係)


不要紧, 没关系, 没什么 and 没事儿  by per_img nciku_edu

不要紧, 没关系, 没什么 and 没事儿
búyàojǐn, méiguānxì, méishénme and méishìr

1. The four phrases all mean "to be of no importance". In the two examples below, any of the four can be used to mean the same thing.
(1) ——对不起,我来晚了。
(2) 没关系不要紧/没什么/没事儿),我不疼。

To view from the structure, 不要紧 can be split into 不大要紧, 不怎么要紧; 没关系 can be split into 没什么关系; 没事儿 into 没什么事儿; but 没什么 can't be split.
(3) 我的伤已经要紧了。
(4) 他们已经和好了,没什么事儿了。
(5) 他已经没有生命危险,没什么关系了。

2. 不要紧 can be used in the subordinate clause to tell that something seems to be of no importance, but really does harm (stated in the main clause).
(1) 他这一走不要紧没关系),把我们全锁在这里了。
(2) 你不去看电影没关系没事儿),但你应该把票给我呀。

In such cases, 一 is often used in front of the verb to indicate an action to be followed by a result. 没关系 cannot be used in this way.

3. 没关系 etc. can also be used as a response to another person's apology.
(1) ——对不起,我撞到你了。

4. 没事儿 can also be used to mean "nothing serious".
(1) ——怎么了?
(2) ——你的病怎么样了?
