From the shot I can see that it handles the extension B chars correctly (it tries to display one single char instead of two surrogate pairs) but cannot find or set the proper font.

It is only after inputting into Notepad set to the Simsun FE font that the character becomes visible. Thi...

Re: Etymology for 鳞

Ni hao! Would someone please tell me what the bottom-right component of 鳞 is and means? Also, how does the etymology of 鳞 work? The 'fish' part is obvious. How does the 'rice ' fit in. And of course, the unknown component. The right part of 鱗 is a phonetic. The 'rice' part is actually 炎. The etymol...

Re: Chinese slang question

I had a very funny Chinese teacher here in Australia who mentioned a lot of slang in our classes. Things like ma ma hu hu and po po ma ma. One that I forgot that has been bugging me for days is the slang term for a guy that looks at girls all the time...I guess our equivelant to a perve. It was som...

As an aside, I have a theory that the Yue word for "he/she" should not be 佢 as popularly used in Hong Kong literature but rather should be 其 (which is used for the 3rd person in 文言. Clues from Hakka/Yue parallels seem to suggest this. My believe is that it is derived from/interchangeable ...
