Hi Tian,

I have followed your blog Hanzi Smatter for a while and I thought you might like to know that it was featured about halfway through the October 26th episode of Jeopardy. Congratulations!

PS: I did cringe a little bit at Alex Trebek's pronunciation. It can't be helped, though.

Spotted on Chris Cantwell. As an American appalled by him and his, I'm dying to know what this really says.

Thanks so much.

subject: What is this!?

Please could you tell me what this means? It's my friends tattoo of her name (gemma) on her arm but she is now not sure if it really does say that??

subject: tattoo translation?

Not sure if you are still are doing this, if you are could you please translate mine? The day I turned 18 I wanted a tattoo, but had no clue so I went to a tattoo parlor and looked through the books and requested "love" in red and "peace" I know that this is not what they say 18 years too late.

Thank you

平和, peace, is missing few bits

Hi there! So I am from northern Wisconsin and as a dumb teenager, who 13 years ago, got a tattoo on a whim with a friend I really need your help. I've asked the Chinese resaraunt employees but can't get a solid answer to what the heck this actually means. Its supposed to mean family however I fear it does not. Please please help me out. Thank you!
