Additional definition?[edit]

Can this also mean "emancipation," as in the song titles "翻身道情" or "翻身的日子"? 24.29.228.33 07:26, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

Yes. -- A-cai 00:32, 6 July 2010 (UTC)

Thank you, I think I have fixed it. Strangely, I can't find the definition of "emancipation" in most online dictionaries. 71.66.97.228 02:10, 6 July 2010 (UTC)

Pleco Dictionary (www.pleco.com) lists the example 翻身农奴 or "emancipated serfs". -- A-cai 13:32, 17 July 2010 (UTC)

Thank you; so should we add an adjective sense "emancipated"? 71.66.97.228 20:48, 18 July 2010 (UTC)

You could if you wanted to, but I'm not sure it's necessary. -- A-cai 01:13, 19 July 2010 (UTC)
