roddy Posted February 27, 2010 at 01:08 AM Report Share Posted February 27, 2010 at 01:08 AM (copying and pasting the below from an email) Your web site was recommended by pleco.com when we were trying to find the English translation for a Chinese phrase 'Ding Hao' or 'Ding How'. We are trying to find out what the expression "Ding How" means in English. We have been told it means 'Thumbs Up', is this correct? Your help would be greatly appreciated. The context it was used in was a saying by fellow WWII pilots in the China-Burma-India Theater of Operations before they took off on a mission over the Himalaya Mountains. My father was one of these pilots who flew C-46 transports from India to Kunming, China (Yunnan Province) and back. We are writing a book of essays of which his story will be included. We think it was a good luck phrase meaning "Thumbs Up" to ensure their safety and success on their mission.
