I get a massive dictionary workout every time I read one of Changye's insightful comments.
In today's lesson about cell phones a lot of stuff came up, and I thought I better record it here - just for my benefit really. I need to learn a few more characters
All these characters can follow 听不 (tīng bù):
Changye, insightful as always
见 - see
:suggesting phyically unable to hear/ inaudible
到 - arrive
:suggesting the sound did not travel
清 - clear
:suggesting either background noise or distortion are causeing the problem
I am starting to see how with a small bit of pretty basic vocab I can be more specific - and less repetitive...
听到 - heard (the news)
This one is interesting - sort of suggesting the sound reached someone. Exactly as it is in English - but we never think of it in that way.
Clearly I think I am right in my understanding - if I am not - please set me straight! And if there is anything more you can add, I would be happy to hear it.
