(遊戲)漢字鏈條 - (Games) Character Chain

Postby laoshu » 2019-06-03, 7:25

How it works:
[*] Simply find out a new word by using the last character of the previous word. All words must be in Mandarin Chinese (regardless of traditional or simplified characters). You should also write down the meaning of that word in English.
[*] If there's no word in Mandarin Chinese can be found by using that last character, the next person is allowed to use the first character of the previous post to form a new word.

Example:
First post: 男人 - man
Next post: 人類 - mankind
Next post: 類型/類別/...


規則:
[*] 用前一帖子中的詞的最後漢字組成新的詞,只允許普通話/華語,繁簡體字皆可。請寫下該詞的英文翻譯。
[*] 在使用最後一字並找不到適當的詞彙的情況下,你能用前一詞的第一個漢字組成新的詞。

例如:
第一個人:男人 - man
第二個人:人類 - mankind
第三個人:類型... - type
等等...



I'll start with the first word.

活力 - vigor, energy
Native: (id)
Speaks: (zh)(en-us)(hi)

That reminds me I have a hard time remembering the Korean for midnight 자정 (子正). I figure it's because both of its morphemes have a million homophones.

It's a pretty opaque derivation if you aren't familiar with the traditional East Asian system of timekeeping.

Where did you learn it? I've never heard this usage with any of the meanings you have mentioned in Taiwan.

Usually,
Hole 孔,洞
Opening 開口 出口
Gap 溝

Thanks for pointing it out! I found it on
mdbg.net but I was also confused about the large variety of possible meanings …

That's true. I can never be bothered to learn obsolete measurement systems except on a need-to-know basis, i.e. individual units that I come across.
