ur mom as an insult is 你 妈的


Just to be picky. The syntax is wrong isn't it?

Shouldn't it be 你的妈? Just trying to brush up on my Mandarin here.

Edit to above: Do you know what syntax means? It means sentence structure... I wasn't changing anything around except for the order.


I thought he wanted the insult. 你的妈 is umm the proper way...

Eh whatever. My Mandarin writing skills are pretty bad anyway. I thought a literal translation would be the way I put it. The insult should stay the same, but I'm probably wrong because I haven't been really using for a while.

hm..i'm chinese...fully...take chinese in school too...my 2nd language...although i'm not that great at it.

^ there's no such thing as simplfied is chinese. it's the standard language...whereas cantonese is a dialect...like hokkien, hakka and many others. coz china is made of many different minorities...and they speak different dialects...but when it comes down to writing it's all the same...expect for the traditional and simplified writing. i think the only place that uses traditional chinese in writing is....taiwan...if i'm not wrong. and kanji in jap. haha.

sorry...a bit long.

lol ok i'll stop.


I learnt Mandarin at Chinese school on Sundays for about 5 years... but i quit, coz i found it boring and hard.
Mom always gives me shit for not being able to speak advanced Mandarin, but then I just give her shit for being a dammed FOB and living in Australia in the first place...

You've been in Australia for longer than I have !!! Learn ENGRISH already !!! >_>
