You can type 、 by pressing crtl+' in the zhuyin mode(i guess it is that one on an American keyboard, the one two keys right from the L. On my keyboard, it is ä). This also works in Pinyin mode.

housecat wrote:You're living with the in-laws? That's damn near saintly devotion. Many Taiwanese women will refuse to marry to avoid this. They'd rather stay single! When your FIL declares NO ENGLISH, he's defacto insulting you by cutting you off. He knows you can't talk, can't communicate, and if your husband allows that--well it should be a problem, IMO. I realize there are differences in culture, but mutual respect and decency towards others DOES translate!

Insist that if you are expected to just sit quietly every time your FIL gets tired of hearing English being spoken, then you are entitled to some REAL Chinese lessons with professional teachers.



I'll second that! -the blue bits, I meant.
By the way, how come it's not you who's in charge of your husband's earnings? As much as I'm aware that's the tradition, the usual thing to do. Do they control you this way as well? -just curious.

All the best

This is fantastic! It also does the regular punctuations! I was constantly hitting SHIFT, ., SHIFT for '。.' CTRL+. works for that, too.
