Even pandas have to take a pee.
On the wall of a dead-end alley:
The word for word translation:
road not through walk not possible at here pee
The original had no punctuation. Here are 2 ways the panda could read this.
1. Not a through road, don't pee here.
2. A dead end road, no through traffic, pee here.
Well, as a student of classical Chinese, I'd definitely have to go with the first translation. This is just instinct, of course, based on context. But you gotta love the lack of punctuation!The-dissonance-reports 19:04, 21 February 2006 (UTC)
I confess, I'm not sure what aesthetics in language is, but "The book was inspired by a BBC Radio 4 show about punctuation, Cutting a Dash, which she hosted." ought to read "The book was inspired by a BBC Radio 4 programme about punctuation, Cutting a Dash, which she presented." 126.96.36.199 (talk) 16:15, 25 March 2017 (UTC)
- I don't really understand what this suggestion has to do with aesthetics, and not having heard the programme I don't know whether it was a panel show (on which she acted as 'host'), or more of a documentary (on which she was the 'presenter'). However, I certainly see no objection to this change, and will make it. Eric Pode lives (talk) 18:42, 25 March 2017 (UTC)
