I appreciate your response. At 16, I was an exchange student to Japan. At 18, I worked for the government as a Chinese linguist and Chinese minority atmosphere analyst. I’ve been translating for more than 25 years. I have a master’s in Cognitive Linguistics, and I wrote my master’s thesis on linguistic relativity. I have lived in abroad for the majority of my life. Please tell me, though, what I don’t understand about ethnicity, culture, and language.
