Simple Chinese words you've never heard before

Posted by bababardwan May 8, 2011 in the Group General Discussion.

Ok, fess up time. I joined CPOd in Aug 2008 so the vast majority of lessons prior to that I've never gotten around to listening to. I thought I'd do a bit of lazy revision and just skim the old lessons starting with the earliest Newbie lessons just to check for holes in my basic vocab. I've just struck 苗条。 I don't recall striking that before. Looks like it's our equivalent of calling someone a bean stalk, or a stick. I'm curious how many others have heard of this if they hadn't done this early lesson:

A google search seems to suggest that on the CPod site it is only mentioned in the above lesson and one other thread:

http://chinesepod.com/community/conversations/post/2852

which involved 2 poddies only [commenting wise anyhow].

I thought it might be fun [and possibly instructive] for other poddies to post here words that they felt were simple and should have known at their level. Come on, fess up, hehe
