      Does anyone have pointers to a list of onomatopoeia in Chinese and English, in particular as used in comics?   There are a few in this 2008 post and an interesting list of trans-lingual onomatopoeia in this wikipedia article (a bit short on the Mandarin stuff), but in particular I'm looking for words equivalent to beep ("di~"?), click, etc.   Thanks!

      I have not paid too much attention to components and radicals so far, so this may be newbie question: Do you know of a good list of components or radicals that indicate a certain "theme" e.g. water-related 氵 in 江 or 清潔 or, for instance, food-/plant-related ⺾ in  蔬菜? Do you believe learning vocabulary grouped in such themes is useful?

      All, 1. How would you translate 吐槽?  2.  Also, what is the tone on 吐? (3rd or 4th or either?) 3. Can you give some examples on how 吐槽 is used?    If you put 吐槽 thru various translators/dictionaries you get different definitions and I've gotten various ones from friends.  The tone for 吐 varies too depending on the source (but what do you hear???).   This group has a vast array of experiences and it would be interesting to hear your thoughts.  Also, sometimes questions on translations trigger interesting discussions (feel free to start one....)

      I was reading about the Silver Sparrow malware today and decided to do a deep system scan on my Mac.   Bitdefender Virus Scanner found this apparent trojan, Trojan.GenericKD.45748640, in the Windows HSK exam client program from October 2020, and deleted it.   I'm not a Windows user (I use Parallels to run Windows 10, almost exclusively so I could do the online HSK exam).     Googling "Trojan.GenericKD.45748640" comes up with only ONE result, in Korean, at https://www.estsecurity.com/public/security-center/db-update   There must be plenty of you guys who know about Windows malware (I don't)... do you think this is a false positive, or has Hanban been distributing a trojan?

      From the outstanding multi-media publication RADII    ("an independent platform of artists, writers and creators dedicated to sharing vibrant stories from the rarely explored sides of new China"): 100 films that may help to better understand China.    Quote ...This is not a ranked list of 1-100 — we’re not trying to tell you the 100 “best” or “most important” films to come out of China. Our goal is to give a round and deep profile of the country through the medium of films made here in the last 100 years or so.     The list is split into 10 categories:    Pre-War, Mao Years, Opening Up, Indie and Arthouse, Documentaries, Wuxia, Popcorn, China Today, Bad Movies, Animation.   Where available, there are links to the individual films. The You Tube links I tried were working but unfortunately some links are region-dependent or no longer available. Be prepared to be disappointed. Even with unavoidable disappointments, this is a valuable list, and a real treasure-trove for China's pre-War films (anyone for melodrama?)

      There are a lot of words(and grammar to some extent) that I know very well but simply don't use when I speak. Off the top of my head : 麻烦你。。。, 发现,里头。These are just a few examples, there are lots. Maybe I always use 里面 or 请。。。even though I know alternatives. How can you get/remind yourself to actively use things you learn that, hear, but rarely say yourself?

      Hi, I just recently come across a circular phrase "睡不着起不来" (it was on a picture in a circular way). What would be the closest translation? How close "I can't sleep I can't wake up" translation is?
