    Chinese Language, Chinese Mind?

    Someone posted a link to an article called "Chinese Language, Chinese Mind?" in another thread.  I thought the question of how the Chinese mind differs was interesting and deserves discussion.



    I think there are fundamental differences as well as fundamental similarities between Chinese and other languages.  In Chinese 白 can mean 'pure' just as a white wedding dress symbolises 'purity'.  In Chinese 馬 means 'horse, military', just as there is a similar link between 'cheval' and 'chevalier'.


    it is all quite interesting.

    I find learning the associate compounds in classical Chinese much more fun and logical that learning semantic-phonetic compounds in vernacular Chinese.
