What's with the random traditional character? It's supposed to say 你叫什么名字?

It means "what's your name?" I'm not good at reading traditional, but I'm pretty sure the subs in the pic means the exact same thing.

In "normal" letters it reads "Nǐ jiào shénme míngzì?"
I think a direct translation would be "You called what name?"

the only kanji I could recognize was 名 from namae as in japanese, in chinese, what would be the reading of the kanji?, is it chinese much different from japanese?, like spanish and portuguese?
#137 to #80 - Seanxone ONLINE (04/02/2014) [-]
It's read as míng and is half of the word míngzì (meaning name) here. Japanese borrows a lot of chinese characters but uses different words for them, they are very different sounding and structural differences start getting obvious the more you look at the languages.
User avatar #148 to #137 - ponchosdm (04/08/2014) [-]
thank you sean, at least I should give chinese a try, chinese sounds cool
#149 to #148 - Seanxone ONLINE (04/08/2014) [-]
It's pretty hard at first getting the tones and different letter sounds down, but once you can read PingYin you can at least survive in a Chinese speaking area.
User avatar #150 to #149 - ponchosdm (04/08/2014) [-]
for some reason I think that to a spanish native, is not too hard to make chinese sounds, or pronunciation. thank you for the heads up about PingYin, I'll read about it.
User avatar #116 to #80 - monkyolsen (04/02/2014) [-]
I have limited knowledge about chinese, and close to no knowledge about japanese. What I do know, however, is that the japanese use a lot of chinese characters, which may lead to certain similarities.

simple overlay of electrons, imagine a coat of information, like cell shading on what you see, memories hijacked for simulacrum and analysis, careful to take control of your dreams they will only cower or try to make real what you do in dreamtime, because they have no concept of such a thing as dreams, to this engine of datagathering what is predicted, what it considers dreams (predictive simulations) have to be made real, so if you dream you fly or kick a preggo mutant from infraspace after you wake these idiots that believe what they 'predicted' will swarm in an attempt to stop or start what they believe you can do because you did so in a dream, only real fast minds could impose themselves on the lie 'as it draws over'

Try: Ni jiao shen me ming zi?

The fun thing here is that the second character for what (shen me 什麼) that the use is the traditional Chinese character, but they're going to China which uses simplified and would read 什么 instead.

User avatar #82 - zxmongoose (04/02/2014) [-]
My school offered Mandarin Chinese this year, so I took it. It's actually a lot easier than I expected.
User avatar #89 to #82 - cumbersome (04/02/2014) [-]
I think that depends a lot on the teacher and their style of teaching it
User avatar #92 to #89 - zxmongoose (04/02/2014) [-]
Probably, my teacher is very easy to learn from. I think the hardest part is getting the tones for the words correct.
#132 to #92 - acerose (04/02/2014) [-]
I live in Taiwan, and most people don't notice the difference between the second and third tone.

In most other Chinese speaking countries they pay more attention to it, though.
User avatar #140 to #132 - zxmongoose (04/03/2014) [-]
Second and third tone probably have the least actual difference between them, to be fair. Those two give me the most trouble when we do activities where we need to determine the tone.
User avatar #95 to #92 - cumbersome (04/02/2014) [-]
Personally I thought the memorization of the characters and what they meant was the hardest, but our teacher made us learn too many at once and expected us to remember them too quickly. Also I took it for three years, so it got more complicated
User avatar #96 to #95 - zxmongoose (04/02/2014) [-]
I believe that. I'm sure it'll get harder, I plan on continuing it. We don't learn too much at once but I'm also pretty good at memorizing stuff so that plays a part in it all. Measure words are a bit of a pain in the ass though, so when I get to the point where I need more specific ones that'll bother me.
User avatar #97 to #96 - cumbersome (04/02/2014) [-]
I*m good at memorizing too, but her teaching wasn't really systematic. She would teach a bunch of random stuff that wasn't in the books, wouldn't teach grammar, and we never really went over measure words. She just kinda told us them as we needed them, but didn't teach us the specific use of each
User avatar #98 to #97 - zxmongoose (04/02/2014) [-]
Ah I see, yeah I can see what makes that difficult then. Our teacher's American, but studied Chinese through college and lived in China for several years before moving back here and marrying a Chinese guy, so I feel like that helps her teaching quite a bit in the fact that she's still studying some of it herself and she relates pretty well to it. But she's really good at explaining characters to us, a little of their backstory, and when to use certain things, even when we don't necessarily need it. It's pretty good.
User avatar #108 to #98 - cumbersome (04/02/2014) [-]
My teacher was Chinese and married to an American man, so she had to learn English. I feel like she doesn't realize that Chinese is harder because you can't sound out the words. There's nothing to tip you off with simplified either because all rhyme and reason has been removed
#142 to #108 - acerose (04/03/2014) [-]
There really isn't that many more hints to pronounce the characters written in traditional, it just takes a lot longer to memorize certain characters, I promise XD
User avatar #143 to #142 - cumbersome (04/03/2014) [-]
But they're made up of radicals though, which gives more of a hint to the meaning
#144 to #143 - acerose (04/03/2014) [-]
The same is true in simplified, the radials have just been changed so they don't take as long to learn or write.
Trust me here, I go to school in Taiwan and my school has almost 70 exchange students from mainland China. The thing we talk about most together is the differences between simplified and traditional.
User avatar #145 to #144 - cumbersome (04/04/2014) [-]
Huh, our teacher always told us that the sense behind the radicals were lost with the simplified. Maybe I misunderstood her
#146 to #145 - acerose (04/04/2014) [-]
Nah, you probably understood what she was saying and she was just being wrong.

Rage inbound: Who else wasn't crazy about the new Karate Kid? I want to like the new "Karate Kid" but this ******* kid will never hold a candle up to Ralph Macchio or the original film(s). I find this new movie so irritating every time I watch it. Him and that Chinese girl, the bent out of shape Jackie Chan (in that I mean his character, he would get out of breath after fighting and it looked lame), the annoying chinese kids, the cheesy camera effects. This movie just was so watered down for the mainstream they shouldn't have even made it.

I'm in actual martial arts and I love the original film. I also happen do web work for one of the famous original Cobra Kai. The thing about the old ones (especially the original first film), it felt like a real story. The Cobra Kai school looked like a real, over the top American dojo. The karate tournament was very realistic and similar to a real tournament. Those little details like registering for the tournament, Daniel san not being able to tie his karate belt, they all were nice touches. And all the fighting, it looked like real karate fighting for the most part without the stupid slow motion camera effects and stupid flipping around/crazy kicks. That goofy kick Jayden did, it's like, he didn't even learn that from Mr. Han. It didn't have the same meaning as the crane kick that Miyagi taught Daniel san to practice.

tl;dr - I didn't enjoy the new karate kid as much as the originals. It felt like a cheap, watered down version without the same meaning and attention to the little things. I found the fighting silly and unrealistic with too many camera effects.

User avatar #105 to #72 - NinjaHermit (04/02/2014) [-]
Well... the crane kick you mentioned kinda is one of those stupid kicks. As cool as it looked in the film, it probably wouldn't work well at all in a real fight (or even a tournament fight).
In any case, the newer Kung Fu Karate Kid wasn't terrible, imo. Compared to the originals, it's not as good, yeah. I agree with you there. But on its own, for what it is, it's an okay movie.
User avatar #75 to #72 - malhaloc (04/02/2014) [-]
I still don't know whats creepier Miyagi wanting Daniel to wax off or Jackie Chan wanting...Will Smith's son to jacket off.

How about the part where it's called "The Karate Kid", but the Kid doesn't do any Karate?

Personally, I would have liked it more if they called it "The Kung-Fu Kid".
