      Kan, are u referring to the new word, biang? If so, there were two many words compounded into one, without pictogram and ideogram; just to cite the six characteristic of Chinese language (liu shu)

    Chinese words are also tonal (one of the six characteristics) as contrast to phonetics. It is not an easy language to learn. Yet many westerners and Africans learn it so well, better than many Chinese in Asia. Thank you for the explanation.
