Good post Searu! I enjoyed reading it. Getting a feel for the way the Chinese language is designed.  ...

So delighted for your happy reactions to my words! Really each Chinese character has wonderful ‘body-language’ that is her unique advantage if compared with English! Through which you could understand more about the  spirit of our culture!
Thanks for your appreciation!

I really enjoy learning a new language and script, though it is really tough at this age. Other than Chinese, the script which is very much related to the word or idea behind the word, the languages I know or can understand are designed differently, fundamentally. The most rigorous, firm and fixed rules among them are in Sanskrit and Hindi. English is among the least consistent in the phonetics and grammar rules. But a lot of words in English, Spanish, Hindi and many Indian languages have a common root (phonetic) that I can trace to Sanskrit or some regional Indian language or Arabic or Persian.
I would love to learn Chinese. I have the feeling it would  help to be among the people, the culture and surroundings, just like a young Chinese child is when they learn the language first. I will perhaps try and do that sometime in the future, combine learning Chinese with experience traveling and living in China for some time. I have to wait for my children to grow up and become more independent, then perhaps I will be able to make some time - a few months of the year perhaps traveling. Hope to visit and learn about your wonderful country.

Your reply is meaningful.  English has absorbed too much of other nations' civilization and has become the most powerful language in the world! It seems like a little whale who is traveling around the Globe. The greedy creature would swallow down any fish when meet with and for this reason ‘she’ grows quite faster! Now the language has about two millions words as vocabulary with which she could describe things in more detailed way with fine image elements!
---------Touring in new places would widen our horizon-line that is good business for the mental and health!
Now we enjoy traveling the world through the CD,  aren't we?

I know. But I still do not agree that the surname "Marx" is appropriately rendered in Mandarin as  ...

Marx(ma-k-s)=马克思(ma-ke-si)=(horse+quarter+thinking)= The horse always does  thinking every quarter(minute)!      For this reason Marx was a great thinker!

I got an alert to a SEARU reply but his reply seems to have gone underground. Maybe he wanted to show that since the Chinese character for the name "Marx" is Chinese, Karl Marx must have been a Chinese.

The great foreigner has settled down in China for about one century where all local people are familiar with his portrait-photo who always sits ahead of chairman Mao!
