Fixed. That was an easy job. You could have done it yourself. :) --Anatoli 22:01, 18 January 2011 (UTC)

First, I was unfamiliar with this term; second, the editor who has made many entries like these, with apparent mistakes of parts of speech headers, should make these changes (s/he has been requested to do so many times now); and third, this editor has objected many times to my suggestions for such repairs, usually saying that Chinese is so different from English that the parts of speech can't be matched (i.e., Chinese words that are nouns should be called verbs in English, vice versa, etc.). So I believe the entry creator does need to assist in this. 71.66.97.228 22:07, 18 January 2011 (UTC)
