Your translations are pretty good. sediment, precipitate JamesjiaoTC 23:15, 29 December 2010 (UTC)

Thanks, those weren't my English definitions, but those given at the end of the ZDic entry. Are both "sediment" and "precipitate" nouns and can they be also used in Mandarin? The definitions seem to indicate that these are Cantonese usages. 71.66.97.228 23:54, 29 December 2010 (UTC)

Sure. I have never seen this char used anywhere before. My interpretation is based on the information given to me here. So I guess that's what it means in Cantonese. JamesjiaoTC 00:01, 30 December 2010 (UTC)
