I thought those were both words and meant different things. Doesn't 满族 (mǎnzú ㄇㄢˇ ㄗㄨˊ :P) mean the entire Manchu ethnicity, whereas 满洲人 means one person or more of Manchu ethnicity?

But 满洲 is a historically and geographically term that doesn't exist anymore. For the ethnicity you have to use 满族. For the person of Manchu ethnicity either 满族 (e.g. you can say 我是满族) or 满族人.

The hell? Only now I've learnt that pǐ is the correct dictionary pronunciation. Everyone says pì.

Even though in theory 恋童癖 is pedophilia, and 恋童癖患者 pedophile, in practice people use 恋童癖 to mean pedophile too.

Same case as 满族.

You put loanwords from Japanese? That's like cheating to me! :twisted:

In the Chinese manga-lovers communities, there are also debates whether lolicon and shotacon are pedophiles. :lol:
