神经

Posted by Purrfecdizzo October 18, 2012 in the Group General Discussion.

Hello,

I have a question about the term 神经, and when I look this word up, I get 'nerve', but the problem is that nerve can refer to more than one thing. It may mean 'force of courage', or it could refer to 'nerves in an organism'. I know that a related word is 神经病 which can be translated as crazy, but I would supposed that maybe the first meaning would be more applicable, but the second could work as well. I don't want to simply assume, or guess, and I am not sure of what source to use to find this answer. Any ideas?

Most sincerely,

George.
