comment What are the real obstacles of romanizing Chinese characters?
@GeorgeChen Spoken Chinese doesn't have this problem when it is directly spoken out from meta (mind) language. There is only a small problem when it's read out from Chinese characters - sometimes there's ambiguity and people read it more than once to make sense. There will be a big problem if the romanization is unable to carry the semantics that characters do, which it doesn't, hence people need to read it multiple times to get the semantics right, then intonation, then pauses and stress. Speaking is not only about pronunciation but romanization is.

comment Subjunctives in Chinese
I believe 'may' in such poems means 宁愿. To rephrase this poem in one-liner spoken language: (as time goes by,) I would rather find the stars and sea vanish than seeing your beauty fade away.

comment Explaining “condescending” in Chinese?
@GeorgeChen I don't think condescending equals offending, or even closely related. Condescension is one of the reasons people may get offended, but on the other hand it is possible one person is condescending against another person but the other person doesn't feel offended at all.

comment Explaining “condescending” in Chinese?
From the question and comments, I am not clear which part of this ask is related to Chinese? Especially considering the upvoted answers are completely in English.

comment How do you say “Cafeteria Workers”?
Actually 师傅 here is like Master Shifu - a person who possesses certain skill and teaches apprentices. The difference is between master of cooking and master of martial art, but the sense of 'master and teacher' is the same.
