    什么 = shén-me

    shénme、shen2me、什么、什麽,depending on how you want to write it.

    If you just say shén, the first thing that pops into my mind is 神 = god, deity

    shen2 me(什么) is correct

     

    what=shen2me0 ex:What would you like to eat? = ni2 xiang3 chi1 shen2 me0?

    shen2 means god.

     

    shenme is correct.
