Chinese YouTube Videos' Titles Are Long [thoughts and discussion]


Recommended Posts

Compared to English and Spanish titles, Chinese and Taiwanese titles have a lot more number of words (but not morphemes: all the opposite) and more semantic content in them.

I contrasted about ten videos from each language and it was true in all of them.
When pronouncing every title the syllabi were just slightly more in Hanyu.

Is this phenomenon cultural or just linguistical? at what grade are the economics of language in this tongue higher applied than in others?


You can check some papers and even the Wikipedia's article on economics of language. Then check Taiwan's trending page and make conclusions.


Also I'd like to know if there's any other Argentinian acquiring Mandarin, I could use talking in Boludo with them
