It's stupid to suggest everyone in the world understands English swearwords.


I'm pretty sure most people around the world understand "fuck off" or "fuck you", especially paired with the hand signal.

But if you want to be a fucker about it...gan ni niang (干你娘). Or even worse...干你老妈屁股.

This morning my wife taught me that "xi" as a prefix means fucking (person), as in xi-adogah. The lady across the street has a yappy drop-kick dog named Taozi, so now I refer to that dog as xi-Taozi. I don't like another local dog, xi-xiao bai very much either... stupid agressive little pisser he is. Pathetic little fluffy doorstop in a cardigan... thinks he's ten feet tall or something.

Kwa San Shao = what the fuck you looking at
San Shao = what the fuck (if you Verb San shao it is what the fuck are you Verbing)
Gan= Fuck
Ji Bai= cunt (but also an adj)
Bei Ran= jackass sort of

But it should be noted that most of my friends say San Shao to sound like Sah Shao instead...

Mandarin profanities

Postby Petrichor » 05 Nov 2010, 03:29

I thought people might find this list interesting

http://www.toplessrobot.com/2010/11/fir ... y.php#more

(not for the easily offended).

Are they authentic? Are they accurate?

Any more to add? (I like to know when I'm being sworn at :) )

I'm assuming you haven't elicited these often. :D

I'm in the fortunate position of not having the first clue about that. :lol:

You guys should really check out the Classic Posts.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mandarin_Chinese_profanity

here is a good listing of quite some Chinese (Mandarin) profanity. What do you think 打飛機 stands for?

Interesting that it lists 老外 under "racism against Westerners".

The number of megapixels does not determine a camera's picture quality; that's a marketing myth. The sensor size is far more important. (Use Google to find it. For example, search for "sensor size Nikon D90.")
