speak chinese like a native

Vocab reinforcement: 折腾

Posted by henning September 21, 2007 in the Group General Discussion .

An expression I hear in about every second conversation is


which I know from the Advanced lesson on Fengshui:


as "to do something repeatedly"

and from the one on the Golden Week


as "to cause physical or mental suffering" .


The CPod dict translates it with


"to roll about"


I think this multi-faceted, high frequency expression deserves some more air time...
