comment Accidentally Saying Chinese Swear Words
And "xing gao" just refers to "sex" (literally, sexual communication). So be careful with this stuff.

comment Pronunciation of 山 (in Taiwan)
@OlleLinge: An "occupation," particularly if prolonged, might have affected "most retroflex initials." Because a different occupier might well have produced a different result. Look that the way that a number of Norwegian words became more like "Swedish" than "Danish" versions after Norway was transferred from Denmark to Sweden in 1814.

comment How should I introduce my wife?
@xpt: My father left China for the United States in 1947, so his usage of 内人 dates back to that time. That's not "hundreds" of years ago (less than 70).
