Chinese language is not using for secret code. There are so many words in Chinese language, If anyone want to learn, they will. This language became the deepest language in the world.

the chinese also became the deepest language in the world.  as someone with a 2nd grade level trying to relearn it, i have found that the only way to learn it is thru osmosis, or by way of revelation, not simply memorization.  my hypothesis is that one has to learn the culture to really understand the language.   


Fully agree, language is the essence of the culture, without knowing the world's deepest language I doubt anyone can ever fully comprehend China.

except chinese words, other ancient words like greece, egypt etc are also not read by current scholars.


Both Egyptian and Greek ancient writings are readable.

The New Zealand Maoris writings are not readable today because the European Christians burnt 99 per cents of them before they knew what they were. Same happened to South American writings.

Chinese is a great language, hard to learn but interesting.

However the idea that it's the "deepest" language int he world is absurd. Every language is deep if you actually fully study it and to fully understand every language in the world you must fully learn the culture it comes from. If you fully understood and learned American English you'd still have big problems if you went to Australia.

And it's wellk nown where it came from, it wasn't a code and it's origins aren't lost. There are very clear evolutions in the ancient writings of Asia to Chinese, learning where Chinese comes from and what words actually mean helps Chinese learners remember the words as well as the culture. 美=大+羊 Because in agricultural societies a big sheep was a thing of beauty for hte people. 活该=活+该 as in Life should be this way. and that's just scratching the bare surface, you can take most characters right back to their roots in ancient fortune telling and other runes. Chinese IS deep, but so are all languages if you actually study them fully.

For those wanting to learn Chinese better look for the books "Chinese Characters in Pictures" as a great place to start. they clearly look at the meanings of the words and where they came from.

This is exactly where we are coming from, you are claiming that you have to fully learn the culture, but compared to the American Enlish culture to comprehend the Chinese culture you will need to spend like 25 times longer the hours to understand it. So not every language is as deep as another language.
