comment What is the difference between 绿 and 青?
@Rephinx, no, no. I never dispute the historical meaning of 青. If you want to take all that into consideration, you can never assign a single colour to it as it has several meanings. I don't believe that it is a mistake made by Wikipedia, but something that people has taken into consideration to create a new meaning for this word which would otherwise be discarded due to its ambiguity.

comment What is the difference between 绿 and 青?
@Rephinx, both Wikipedia and Baidu says exactly the same thing. To imply that both are wrong is like 一竹竿打翻整船人.

comment What is the difference between 绿 and 青?
@Rephinx, if you refer to Baidu article, it says 青色 and 水绿色 are synonymous. Different people may perceive it differently, and that's alright.

comment How to translate the following grammar-pattern: 让/叫 N+V —— N还/ 就真 V (呀)
N还/就真V呀 means N already V and you are exclaiming in disbelievement. So, this is not a question will N really V?, but instead something like I ask N to V and, wow, N really V!.
