comment Academic explanation for rhyming fillers with irrelevant meaning in doggerel
@DonKirkby Whoa! You blew my mind! Also money => "bread and honey" => bread. I'm wondering if this question (which is awesome) should be cleaned up and migrated to linguistics.SE

comment Academic explanation for rhyming fillers with irrelevant meaning in doggerel
@JamesJiao In Cockney rhyming slang, AFAIU, the apples and pears that you mention will even drop out in favor of the non-rhyming word, to become "I'm going up the apples"!

comment Dog radical (犭) for non-Han ethnic groups
Maybe I'm completely wrong, but I thought 犭 has to do with dog just like 氵 has to do with water, 灬 has to do with fire or 忄 has to do with heart. It's not that the character takes on the full property of that radical, but there's some of that meaning in the character.

this is pretty helpful. thanks. Looks like it was the PRC not the KMT that started changing the ethnic characters.

comment Should the temporal indicators be in a certain order?
@JamesJiao I'm not sure what you mean. All I'm saying is that 午饭 is a noun (and the object of the sentence) not a temporal indicator. The grammar is fine.
