Never make these mistakes in Chinese 35

          Duì yǐhūn fùnǚ shénme chēnɡhu?
False: 对已婚妇女什么称呼?
          Duì yǐhūn fùnǚ zěnme chēnɡhu?
True: 对已婚妇女怎么称呼?

什么 refers to persons or things. It can not premodify verbs(such as 称呼) as an adverbial adjunct. Here is a question of how to address people. Thus the proper word is 怎么.
