Cāochǎng jíhé操场集合-Meet in the playground
Liǎng fēnzhōng shíjiān, kuài!两分钟时间，快！-Two minutes, hurry!
“时间shíjiān” means “time”.We often say this(+shíjiān)also.Or you can just say”Liǎng fēnzhōng, kuài!“
Xiàng shénme yàngzi a!像什么样子啊！-(See)What(you)look like!
‘啊a” just a particle
They are not look like soldiers
Lǎnsǎn de hěn!懒散的很！-Very lazy!
This is a spoken Chinese
=很懒散Hěn lǎnsǎn,but “Hěn lǎnsǎn” is a little bit formal
You can say a girl”Piàoliang de hěn”(very pretty),A kid”Kě’ài de hěn“(cute)
=”Hěn piàoliang“(very pretty)
More example: Hào chī de hěn =hěn hào chī好吃的很=很好吃-Very tasty
Kāishǐ diǎnmíng!开始点名！-Start roll call!
This name is show on the list：(王尚瑞Wángshàngruì)
“Wáng” is second tone
The second one will be“尚Shàng”
It(sounds) the same“上Shàng”
往上端Wǎng shàngduān-To the top
Wángshàngruì VS Wǎng shàngduān
(王尚瑞) VS 往上端
Why (does) no one answer?
What he say it’s this:往上端 Wǎng shàngduān-To the top
“Wǎng” is third tone，“Shàng”-fourth tone，“Duān”-first tone
It means to the top
So you see the soldiers ,they all go to the top(raise the basin higher)
But what does this name actually pronounce?
This name call”Wángshàngruì”
Why he said”duān“ instead of”ruì”
The right parts are the same. Just the left parts(radicals) are a bit different
wǒ(Zhèngzài） diǎnmíng ne!-我（正在）点名呢！-I’m calling the roll!
Actually he dropped”Zhèngzài”
”Zhèngzài” means doing something(v-ing)
Wǒ diǎnmíng ne!=Wǒ zhèngzài diǎnmíng ne!
(Zhè shì bùshì jiào wǒ a?)（这是不是叫我啊？）-(Is he calling me?)
“Bù” is original(tone),
But when we have fourth tone after, need to change to the second one even Though we write in the original.When we speak we need to pronounce second tone
He later gonna answer:
-It’s only used for roll call in school or military
“Dào” literary means” arrive” or” achieve”
But here means(answering)”Here”
When in daily life,we don’t say”Dào”,we just say”Zhèlǐ“.It means” I’m here”.Or”Zhèr”,northern Chinese will say”Zhèr” more often.
This “倒Dào” the only difference is the little person(radical)on the left
It related to “person”
Shéi ràng nǐmen dào de a?谁让你们倒的啊？-Who asked you to pour it?
He always says”dào di a” is a dialect.
“Shéi “-who,”ràng”-let/to ask.You-nǐmen.Dào-to pour
Fá nǐ dào qiáng biān hǎn yībǎi biàn “dào”罚你到墙边喊一百遍“到”！-You will be punished by going to the wall and shouting “Here” a hundred times
Here we have two “dào”(in a sentence)
“dào qiáng biān”it means go to(against the wall)
“Hǎn” means ”yell” or “shout”
Wángshàngruì(王尚瑞),Nǐ zhè míngzì tài kēngdiē la你这名字太坑爹啦！-Your name is too dumb!
You-Nǐ ,zhè-this,míngzì-name,(all together)means”your name”
Because emphasis so we use”zhè”.You can say“Nǐ de míngzì tài kēngdiē la”
kēngdiē坑爹 -We use a lot in China
-(lit.)deceive/kidding your father;
(means)dishonest ;trap;the reverse of one’s expectation;stupid,dumb;
“Diē” is the very ancient way we say“father”
Here(the whole sentence) means-Your name is too dumb!
We have several usages of “kēngdiē”.If you want to know more of “kēngdiē”.I can make a separate short video explain about it
Please let me know in the comment below
Wǒ zěnme zhīdào a我怎么知道啊！-How do i know
Kuài hǎn快喊！-Shout it!
Shì nǎge tùzǎizi hǎn wǒ dào dào dào la!是哪个兔崽子喊我倒倒倒啦！-Which bastard kept telling me to reverse the car!
You can hear she speaks with a strong accent of dialect.
“Tùzǎizi” is a very common informal way to say“bastard” in China
This“Dào” is omitted the“chē”
Dàochē倒车--Reverse a car
But she emphasis (and said)“Dào,Dào,Dào”
In real life, we often omit some words
Outro-A real awkward story from me
Speaking of dumb names, I have personally experienced this similar embarrassing moment, my last name is “lú”, is a less common last name. I remember many years ago when I was working in a travel company, I went to an event at Baidu and won the lottery, but the host called me “lǘ xiáo jiě(Miss Donkey)”, I really wanted to burrow to the ground at that time! I went to the stage and said to the host, “This word is not pronounced “lǘ(donkey)”, it’s pronounced “lú”! She was so embarrassed too! I hope you can know as much as the Chinese characters and cultural aspect to avoid this kind of awkward.😂
I don’t know if you get the point(humor point). You review all the sentences and watch the whole video again.
