The Mandarin Chinese word '反正 (fǎnzhèng)' is generally used in conversation as a transition phrase when the speaker wants to express a certain conclusion or determination, regardless of other circumstances. It's equivalent to expressing 'anyway' or 'in any case' in English. Often, it depicts a somewhat casual or dismissive attitude towards other possible or considered factors.
