Just now through the WE-CHAT  one friend messaged me a short TV-program called ‘死磕到底’------- which means ‘ Debate bitterly to the end! ’.  The host‘s hot words left me deep impression that led me think more about the character 磕(ke)----------which first part is 石(shi)that means ‘stone’;  去 can be understood as ‘to’;  皿(min)is some container like ‘plate’ or 'cup' and so on.  The whole of 磕 shows that ‘To throw one stone to some plate!’ ----- Yes, you want to 'hit’ it and it might be broken! --------So the original meaning of 磕 is ‘to hit something with another hard thing’ in Chinese.

In the north-east of China there is such a local dialect 唠嗑 which means ‘have a chat’. I think this phrase comes from English!  唠嗑(Lao-ke)sounds like the later part of ‘dia-logue’. --------'Dia' is two-side-thing and ‘logue’ should mean ‘talk’!

In Chinese, 死磕 means ‘To fight against the opposite side till I win! Or I will never quit!’ Of course such fighting may include weapon-battle and oral-quarreling!

But in the CD forum, 死磕 should be changed into 死嗑. I use 口 (mouth)to replace the stone(石 )of 磕. It is enough for blogger friends to make full use of tongue to make a living in  hot debating field!

Understand and find out what are the connections among the  original languages is so fantastic.

In a closer comparison, did you find, that all the spoken languages have some common similarities, say pronunciation, meaning and of cause with different script.

The word (phrase)"Laoke'er"" is to say : Chatting randomly, friendly within the same–aged and like–minded acquintance or thte special trustworthy guests?



What's on your mind... Backing to the starting point all over again, lots of challenges and full of temptations. Can you grasp the opportunity?
