"something suttle" translated to danish or exsplained in english

do you mean "something subtle"? --EncycloPetey 01:01, 2 October 2007 (UTC)
"noget upåfaldende" would be one explanation, the semantic span is quite large. Something is "noget", but subtle can mean a lot of things, it can mean "not easily noticed" but with many possible overtones from devious to just not overly noticeable.--Axegern 12:19, 25 February 2008 (UTC)

Translate into latinEdit

I am my beloved's my beloved is mine. Amans amantis utrique sumus. I am truly uncertain about this one. I do not think Latin would render this as it is rendered here, as it would create a redundant "my is my" construction which loses the meaning of the sentence. This rendering is literally "We are each the lover of the lover" which I think conveys roughly the same sentiment.

Chinese into EnglishEdit

Hi, how would you translate 邷么儿 into english? (Pinyin as well) Thanks. -- unsigned

The Pinyin would be "wǎ yāo er", but I don’t know what means. -- unsigned
Actually, I believe the pinyin should be "wǎ mer" (the trad. Chinese is 邷麼兒, and 麼 does not have an alternative pronunciation of yāo, as is the case with 么, its simplified equivalent). This is an archaic word (verb+object) which appears in Chapter one of Journey to the West, one of China's four classic novels. It refers to a children's game involving either small pebbles or pieces of tile (it is also known as 抓子儿).[1] One English translation of the novel renders it as "playing knucklebones."[2] Based on the description of 抓子兒 in Guoyu Cidian on-line Chinese dictionary,[3] "playing knucklebones" (or "playing jackstones") seems like a reasonable translation. 邷 can mean several things. In this case, it is a verb meaning "to grab" (抓). -- A-cai 12:03, 8 November 2007 (UTC)

kiosk - from what nationality/country did the word kiosk originate?Edit

I realize the word kiosk has many similar meanings, such as being used as an employment application station, amusement park information booth, small gifts kiosk, airline ticket sales, movie tickets, etc. I was wondering if anyone might know the nationality from which it originated.

If you look under the entry for kiosk, you'll see it came into English from French. However, the French got it from the Turks, who borrowed the term from the Persians. --EncycloPetey 01:41, 10 October 2007 (UTC)
