Sorry to deviate from cheap wines, battery-less Polaroids etc.
The word "Ma" in Chinese, depending on its intonation, means "mother",
"horse", "scolding", and a fourth definition which escapes at the moment. I
would like to ask some of our Chinese friends the complete translation for
the word "Ma" and a description for all its intonations. And, if I may be so
greedy, for the Chinese characters for each definition.
Many she-she in advance.
