4 thoughts on “辱”

  1. “get the bird” – the dictionary says this means to be dismissed, but I do not think I have ever seen it used like that. Another meaning is far more common: “to be booed or jeered at”.

  2. Hi Min Min

    I think the pinyin on example three needs adjustment.

    In the US, to get the “bird” is to be given a rude, insulting gesture.


    1. Hi Arthur Chen,
      Thanks for pointing out the English meaning of “bird”.
      I have corrected it. Thanks.
