Chinese is a very inflexible language when compared to English.
It also is a very vague language.
" Any language has the ability to be vague or specific.
Culturally, language use might show speakers using "vague" or "specific" language (however you define that...) in certain situations. One language might have more specific vocabulary for some domains than others. Some languages require expressing certain grammatical information while others don't. But no one language as a system can really be described as more or less "vague" than another."
"No language . . has been shown to be more accurate, logical or capable of expression than another" - J.R. Edwards
