What I'm learning

Granted, I've only got snippets of information in comparison to those more immersed in these issues, much of it from looking up terms related to current events. In earlier studies on this material, I only looked at the solutions to the sort of issues and problems faced by any human (not far beyond the usual food and clothing, to be specific).


More recently, if basic research by one such as myself can raise questions on the important terms within the speech of a head of state (namely hierarchy within relationships between the parties in a trade agreement), then what else is there to be found by someone more informed than I am?


It's easy enough to look up simple terms and run into related adages, of course. Considering the history of the head of state, I'm convinced that the gentleman's got several multiples of 十 he's keen to work on. I'd suggest some care, though, when choosing an adage about what's in vain. Certain terms have evolved in their usage to the point where I'm likely to root for a northern neighbor to keep kicking. And speaking of word choice being a minefield, I'd also like to think there's some awareness about the choice of nothingburger as a clapback, considering the controversy around the origins of COVID-19.


Whether I like it or not, no language is immune to that sort of evolution, whether the reason is dubious, dangerous, or just plain cracked to bits. One could speak of the characters that are still there, 微软, or about the characters that contest boundaries on land (good thing to see, that pulling back) and on water (if there's no pulling back on that front, I doubt the land version's permanent) and of time (wasn't that meant to be 50 years?). Or the character of characters that deal with characters that aren't there at all.


So while I can agree that there is much of constructiveness, there is revisionism as well. Change is a constant, and there's no destroying something that's grown so. But from what I've seen and read, I think there's a need for containment, and I look forward to news of any measures that can be taken on that front.
