How about the zhongwen.com?
asking-questions/how-about-the-zhongwen-com-t40.html


Searching with the key word (Chinese etymology), zhongwen.com ranks above top five. It is managed by Dr. Richmond Harbaugh (Professor of East Asian Languages & Cultures, Indiana University). In this thread, we have showed that the etymologies of that site are sickening wrong.

What is Chinese etymology?

By searching the key word “Chinese etymology”, Richard Sears’ website always ranks NO. 1. Recently, many newspapers in China reported his work. In this thread, we have showed that Sears' site is not about etymology at all although it has some useful data for the evolution of word forms.

Chinese character set is pseudoscience, 汉 字 是 伪 科 学!
general-discussion/chinese-character-set-is-pseudoscience-t15.html


In this thread, a group which was led by Dr. John DeFrancis is discussed. The objective of this group is to show that Chinese character system is an inferior language in comparison to the Western languages.


Dr. Unger (Professor, Department of East Asian Languages and Literatures, The Ohio State University) is a key member of this group. In this thread, the Foreword, the Introduction and a webpage of his book (Ideogram: Chinese Characters and the Myth of Disembodied Meaning) were analyzed. The conclusion is that Dr. J. Marshall Unger is wrong.

Educators' conscience, wrong to the young students (誤 人 子 弟)!

Is wasting young students' life away an acceptable practice? This issue is discussed at Chinese language forum ( general-discussion/is-it-wrong-to-the-young-students-t36.html ) in detail.

Can educators run away from their conscience? Can educators escape from the law of karma?
