On the Equivalent of "Kill" in Mandarin Chinese
Tai, James H-Y.; Chou, Jane Yang
Journal of the Chinese Language Teachers Association, 10, 2, 48-52, May 75
The purpose of this article is to show that "sha" and "sha-si" are not identical and that there is no perfect correspondence between either word in Chinese and "to kill" in English. It is suggested that the closest Chinese equivalent is "nong-si." (Author/RM)
