Rubber stamps

Posted on October 14, 2021 at 6:34am 0 Comments

If you'd like a rubber stamp, I can afford to make 2 (USA peeps only due to expensive overseas shipping); I'm already planning to send one of these to Thomas Brown.…

I thought I'd start my own thread about this, to reduce the chances of censorship & deleted comments.

Someone from Facebook, presumably, saw my recent pictogram:

And proceeded to accuse, presumably me, of making them doubt their gender.

Presumptions aside, I think this makes for a good subject for a blog post. I would…

An associate of my friend Carl Masthay, Connie, is Cantonese and provided more information about your translation problem:

Lan er , is  蘭兒, can be any kind of flowers with the word 蘭。

Jing Ling 精靈, is not ghost in here, things like an Elf is 精靈,a little nonhuman creature but not a ghost.  For example, Pokemon is known as 寵物小精靈 chǒngwù xiǎo jīngling; in Cantonese, 寵物 is a pet [lit., ‘favored thing’], Pokemon [‘pocket monster’] is a pet jīng ling.

You were unsure of the translation to Chinese for "Ice" and "Ghost".  My friend, Dr. Carl Masthay, has provided the following:

Brad,

I have to say that's it's an imperfect match. I am including some others who know Chinese well if someone has a better idea. May that someone also include both of us in e-mailing. Here are my results:

 

“Ghost” does match the following:

精灵 = jīngling (ling drops its rising tone to spoken neutral, middle range) ‘spirit, demon; (of a child) clever, smart, intelligent’

but “Ice” does not match these three possibilities

兰儿 = lán-er ‘orchid’ (orchid boy, literally, but the true sense in North Mandarin, as in Beijing, is an intimate, endearing, familiar orchid and must be pronounced lár with nasalization of the rising-tone á; it doesn’t appear in dictionaries)

蓝儿 = lán-er ‘little blue one’ (rising tone; not in dictionary)

懒儿 = lǎn-er ‘little lazy one’ (low-rising tone; not in dictionary)

This is the normal word for ‘ice’:

冰 = bīng ‘ice’ (high-level tone)

If Lan-er is a mishearing of “lěng-er” (say in English /lung-er, lungr/; low-rising and neutral tones; not in dictionary) it would mean ‘dear little cold or cool one’.

 

Not so simple, eh?

Carl

Hey, 'Bishkeckian'! BTW twould never BBcause of y'r religion that I'd not wish to mailart with you but that you might be a prosylitizer [sp=horrid] and thereby annoying. I'm a non-believer bcs I feel there is not enough evidence to KNOW. I wish I'd had the epiphany that makes a believer but mine have been much 'smaller' and on different stuff. Latterly, I drift toward the Hindoo belief that after death we return to the GOB [ground of being] from which all sprang. It's the way I now see what's long been my desired afterlife, to inhabit the Universe and 'see' all including the supernoval nucleosynthesis responsible for our essential and heavier than iron elements.
