Don't expect ordinary, run-of-the-mill words here!!! (at least, not too many)

This site is meant to provide info for students of the Chinese language who want to go beyond the words normally encountered in the early stages of language study and discover what I consider "interesting" words. Sometimes the words represent everyday words like tissue paper or jogging track or bowling alley or surfboard, some are more technical terms like fuzzy logic or Global Positioning System. Sometimes the words just have rarely used characters. I am partial to words for various types of plants and animals, so you will find words for newt, armadillo and other assorted animals.

I've tried to provide some pictures and/or links to add to the interest. If you have any ideas about format or interesting words, please e-mail me with your suggestions. I'm toying with the idea of providing some on-line dictionary capability for areas of special interest, like a list of all the chemical elements or a page of bird names and things like that. Check back frequently as this site evolves!!!

I use gif files and Big-5. If you need software to view Chinese, Japanese or Korean, I've provided 2 files for download, and
