To answer the question posted in the attention tags - Whom else would one give birth to? Is "heir" intended? - this word is very old and no longer used in Modern Chinese. My interpretation is here refers to 遗传 ("to inherit"), whilst just means "to give birth to." Therefore, an "heir" is indeed intended in the meaning. Tooironic 00:23, 28 February 2010 (UTC)
