The word 'shan' could translate to any number of words. Chinese is a tonal language. Therefore, with a shift in tone, the meaning of a word can change dramatically.

The meaning of shan may be:

- mountain (shān)

- earthworm (shàn)

- hernia (shàn)

- to delete (shān)

- fan (shàn)

- flash (shÇŽn)

There are many more meanings for the word 'shan' - the above are only a very few. The meaning depends on both tone and context.
