comment Why is Economic translated to “經濟”?
@StumpyJoePete,“经济”一词在古汉语中是“治理国家”的意思。后来被日本人作为西方经济学概念的翻译。当时中国学者的翻译是“生计学”、“计学”,到 1903 年以后在中国逐渐开始采用“经济学”。至于日本人为何翻译成“经济”,可能是联系了“经济”这个词原来的意义,具体的原因,我觉得应该去日语区问。

comment Resources for learning Shanghainese
@StumpyJoePete, as I said, Mandarin Chinese is the fundamental to beginners. Learn it before you start to learn dialects like Shanghainese. The main difference between Shanghainese and Mandarin is the pronunciation. The characters are the same and grammars are similar. If you really want to learn Shanghainese, go to youtube (youtube.com/…) and I also said that the best way to learn it is to speak to native Shanghainese.
