"Chinese made simple?" A preview
I announced a few weeks ago I had a Eureka moment about simplifying and modernizing Chinese (see linked post, at bottom). Well, I recently blasted out my whole proposal, punctuated with the musings of an incipient Sinophile (moi). It's about 4000 words long, peppered with Chinese characters, Romanized Mandarin and my own neologisms (this absurd preemption notwithstanding), so I have decided to have pity on youse guys and post it in smaller segments over the coming week or so. (Gee willickers, I can feel my readers' excitment building around the world already.) Stay tuned.
