    I think that's wat people yell in one of those chinese badminton matches on youtube.
    Literally translated I would put "add oil". It roughly means put more gas in the tank.
    I.E. go harder, faster, stronger. As others have stated, it's a term meant to encourage someone to keep at it and play hard/fiercely.

    Hope that makes sense. It's kinda difficult to explain through typing.

    As both a player and an umpire. I would love to play in a loud surrounding. It would push me further when I play with all the (hopefully support and not the pressure from being in an away crowd)

    As an umpire, I definitely love to have a very loud atmosphere. It just makes me enjoy the match that much more.

    Between rallies as loud as possible^^ But within rallies only if it is long one and scream when players are smashing like your hear it in All England videos

    I know this is a 2-year old thread that I'm resurrecting (!!!) but since it came up to the top in the "Today's Post".... just a correction on the term "chia you".

    The explanation given is correct. However, the pronunciation is more accurate as "jia you". I don't think there's a chinese word that's pronounced "chia". Instead of the "ch" sound, it starts with your mouth making a "zt" sound.

    Just thought I'd bring this up cos many non-Chinese speakers learning the language do make this common mistake.

    depends on which "chinese". maube in mandarin yes, but with Hokkian, Hakka and otheres, maybe what the other poster said is right

    Agreed. In certain dialects, "jia you" would be literally translated to be pronounced as "chia you", but that would translate in that dialect to "eat oil", which is used more often to describe a car's big appetite for petrol. They wouldn't use "chia you" to describe encouragement. The intonation would be completely different as well.
