* I'm not so sure about the translation "to promise", in all Chinese examples I've seen 满口答应 is used to describe one person unreservedly agreeing when asked to do something, but it is used by both Wenlin and Pleco, and is a possible translation of 答应.

【Wenlin】
v.p. promise with great readiness

【Pleco】
readily promise

【MoE】
完全答应。如:「张伯伯很信任他,就满口答应了他的要求。」



伯纳德提出自己可以给爱德华当秘书,爱德华满口答应下来。
When Bernard suggested that he might fill the role of a secretary, Edouard agreed.

让我没想到的是,他笑了,并满口答应。
To my surprise, he laughed and agreed.

他满口答应了这件事,是有他自己的算盘的。
In agreeing so readily, he had an axe to grind.
-------------------------------------------

Editor:
Pleco (PLC) is an updated version of Wei Dongya, ed. 《汉英词典》 "A Chinese-English Dictionary" (aka "ACE"), which was originally published in 1978, and much of ABC is highly derivative of older versions of ACE. (And many other dictionaries are also derivative of ACE. It was a very influential dictionary.)

When PLC and ABC have very similar definitions, it shouldn't be taken as independent corroboration. Rather, the default assumption should be that they come from the same source.

ACE was very good for its time, but it became dated and had some omissions, and some misleading wording in definitions, etc.

I would rather define 满口答应 to match the usage we find. We can always add "promise readily" later if we find instances of that sort of usage.

Oceanus is both the personification of the river that encircles the world of the mortals and a Titan, born of the primordial deities Uranus and Gaia, sibling of Cronus, Rhea and the other Uranides. The Titans are the second generation of deities and can be called gods ("Titan gods"), but usually are just called Titans, to distinguish them from the younger generation of gods, the Olympians--who they fought in the War of the Titans--and their offspring which are always called gods.

Just trying to keep the definition clear and consistent.

一种美国卡骆驰(Crocs)鞋业公司出品的塑胶鞋。本是为划船运动设计,具有良好的防滑性与舒适度,外形类似拖鞋,圆头阔身,鞋面上布满洞眼,后有一条用来止滑的带子。因鞋面上有很多透气孔,故称。也作「花园鞋」。【台】也作「布希鞋」。

Philologists point out that 神祗 is a mistake an indeed no dictionary I have access to defines it, but the same articles show historical common usage and identify 祗 as a 通假字 for 祇 and providing several historical examples with this usage. Currently 神祗 is not only used but seems much more common than 神祇--BLCU's BCC corpus has no example for 神祇 but 480 for 神祇, including many from national newspapers and works by Gu Long (“他走过去,走入观音庵前的紫竹林,他从不信神佛,直到现在为止,从不信天上地下的任何神祗 。”), Chiung Yao (“听到小双这几句话,诗尧忘了打架,坐在地上,他惊愕而激动的望着小双,仿佛她是个至高无上的神祗 。”), San Mao (“荷西不说一句话,像希腊神话里的神祗 一样在推着他的巨石。”), Wang Xiaobo (“所以阿兰想说:自身生而美丽是多么的好哇——就像一个神祗 一样,可以在人间制造种种的意外。”) and many others.

Maybe the definition should indicate it is considered a mistake, maybe it should indicate 神祗 as a variant of 神祇, I'm not sure. But I'm sure 神祗 should be there.

神祇/神祗 is often plural, but not always, see some of the examples above, and below, with English translation.

狮鹫、海怪、神祗、君王,这个荒凉营地中的大多数囚徒日日夜夜里用它们风化的面孔望向天空。
Griffins and sea monsters, gods and kings, most of the inmates of this forlorn encampment spend their days and nights with their weathered faces turned to the heavens.

我们的大脑不费力气就能变幻出一个精灵、神祗、鬼怪的想象世界,而我们越是感到危险不安,就越难以抵御这种超自然世界的吸引。
Our brains effortlessly conjure up an imaginary world of spirits, gods and monsters, and the more insecure we feel, the harder it is to resist the pull of this supernatural world.

他们可能会接受,耶稣是个人,但他不是神祗。
They might be accepting that Jesus is human but not that he is divine.

尼西亚信经说,不,耶稣不是变为神祗,他一直是神祗。
The Nicene Creed said, no,Jesus did not become divine he always was divine.

阿托姆是埃及最为远古的神祗之一,是太阳创世哲学的一部分。
Atum was one of the most ancient gods in Egypt and was part of the Heliopolitan cosmology.

唐代著作也显示出狐狸精与高级神祗之间的连系
Tang writings also reveal a connection between the fox and higher divinities

我们也许会赋予佛陀某种他自己从未承认的位格,比如把他视为一尊神祗的化身、绝对终极的体现、或者一位个人的救主。
We may ascribe to the Buddha a status he never claimed for himself, as when we regard him as the incarnation of a god, as the emanation of the Absolute, or as a personal savior.
----------------------------------------------------------

Editor:
1) "divine"?
他们可能会接受,耶稣是个人,但他不是神祗。
"They might be accepting that Jesus is human but not that he is divine."

Here, "human" is an adjective. That doesn't mean 人 is an adjective; it's a noun.
Similarly, the *phrase* 他不是神祇 can be translated as "he is not divine", but at the *word* level (i.e. for the purposes of a dictionary), 神祇 has to be treated as a noun (defined as "deity" or "god", but not "divine").

2) "神祗 seems much more common than 神祇"?
Google results (using Tools|Verbatim)
"神祇" - 982,000
"神祗" - 451,000
Proportionally, it's similar to the results for 已经 versus 己经 (roughly 2 million and 1 million results respectively.)

3) "BLCU's BCC corpus has no example for 神祇"
That seems very strange, given that all the dictionaries say 神祇 is correct, and Google says 神祇 is more than twice as common. I have a collection of about 3,500 magazine articles written in Chinese ("Taiwan Panorama"). 神祇 appears about 50 times, and 神祗 doesn't appear even once.

4) "I'm sure 神祗 should be there."
I think 神祗 should be on a "did-you-mean list", separate from the dictionary proper. If someone searches for 神祗, the search engine should direct the user to the entry for 神祇, just like when you search the Oxford Dictionaries website for "buisness", you get this message:

Did you mean "business"?
"buisness" is a common misspelling of "business".
[along with a link to the entry for "business"]
https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&filter=dictionary&query=buisness

I think 神祗 belongs in a list of terms that require redirection, just as the Oxford website has a list of terms like "buisness" that aren't included in the dictionary itself.

<did-you-mean list>
神祗 --> 神祇
己经 --> 已经
[...]

5) "神祗 [shen2 zhi1]"?
I presume 神祗 would be pronounced [shen2 qi2], same as 神祇, because the word is shénqí, however you write it. (Similarly, I expect people would pronounce 己经 as yǐjīng, even though the first character is jǐ, and "buisness" would be pronounced the same as "business".)

【Wenlin】

【Pleco】
go nowhere; meet one's doom

When you play the game of thrones , you win or you die. There is no middle ground.

资本主义是死路一条,那里根本没有未来可言。
Capitalism is a dead end; there is no future for it
-----------------------------------

Editor:
1) "to be doomed" matches the verb phrase 只有死路一条, but 死路一条 is only used as a noun, as far as I can see.
2) Given that we have a definition for 死路, this entry for 死路一条 does little more than confirm that it's a set phrase.
3) A more interesting word in your example sentences, missing from cc-cedict, is 论说. I'll put in a sub for that.

* Wenlin and Pleco have "shooting star; meteor", it's believable but I haven't seen any example where 星火 actually stands for meteor. LAC has "原指流星急速坠落的火光", so the light (or spark) of a meteor. I don't know if it's worth mentioning in the definition.
* MOE says "比喻小事", that's believable but I haven't seen other examples with this meaning.
* MOE says "星名。东方七宿苍龙中之一星。"--this may be true but I haven't seen it anywhere else and don't know what the English name would be, or even if there is one.
* It doesn't really mean urgent, as all examples have a word meaning urgent followed by a comparative particle (急于星火/急如星火 -- both fixed expressions already on CEDICT), it's more like a quantifier in these cases. I'm not sure how to express this in the definition.

1) Those geographical names are just clutter in this entry. We have separate entries for all of them:
大同區
大同市
大同鄉
--------------------------------------
2) It's *Confucian*, not neo-Confucian. Neo-Confucianism is "a movement in religious philosophy derived from Confucianism in China around AD 1000 in response to the ideas of Taoism and Buddhism", whereas "the notion of the Great Unity appeared in the Lǐyùn (禮運) chapter of the Book of Rites" [Wp], and the Book of Rites dates back much earlier than 1000 AD:

"Liji, (Chinese: “Record of Rites”) ..., one of the Five Classics ... of Chinese Confucian literature, the original text of which is said to have been compiled by the ancient sage Confucius (551–479 BC). During the 1st century BC the text was extensively reworked by Dai De (Elder Dai) and his cousin Dai Sheng (Younger Dai)."
[Britannica Academic]

"The concept of “datong” in Chinese philosophy was developed more than two millennia ago in the Confucian classics."
https://hub.hku.hk/bitstream/10722/143448/2/Content.pdf?accept=1
--------------------------------------
3) "sim. New Jerusalem" is rather unhelpful. Compare:

a) New Jerusalem
Wp ~ "It will be inhabited by people to live eternally in spirit form, created by God as a gift to mankind. Not everyone will reside in New Jerusalem, as most will possibly stay on Earth."
Web ~ "Who are the residents of the New Jerusalem? The Father and the Lamb are there (Revelation 21:22). Angels are at the gates (verse 12). But the city will be filled with God’s redeemed children."

b) Datong
"Rulers are selected according to their wisdom and ability. Mutual confidence is promoted and good neighborliness cultivated. Hence men do not regard as parents only their own parents nor do they treat as children only their own children. Provision is secured for the aged till death, employment for the able bodied and the means of growing up for the young. Helpless widows and widowers, orphans and the lonely as well as the sick and disabled are well cared for. Men have their respective occupations and women their homes. They do not like to see wealth lying idle, yet they do not keep it for their own gratification. They despise indolence, yet they do not use their energies for their own benefit. In this way, selfish scheming’s are repressed, and robbers, thieves and other lawless men no longer exist, and there is no need for people to shut their outer doors. This is the great harmony."
https://reflectingonanselm.wordpress.com/2015/09/24/the-great-harmony-the-ta-tung-confucius-said/
(translation from the Lǐyùn (禮運) chapter of the Book of Rites)
--------------------------------------
4) TP
東方人照樣可以頭頂金髮、紅髮,儼然已經「世界大同」了。
For Asians wearing blond or red hair, it's as if there is already universal brotherhood.

當「男有分、女有歸」不再是大同理想,
The traditional notion that the man practices a profession and the woman stays at home is no longer a social ideal,

才會相信真有世界大同的一天,
to believe that one day the entire world will be able to be as one

就像一個大家庭,所有收入集中管理,成員吃、住、教育、生活所需也全由大家長負責。但每家戶個別居住,單身、老人各有不同宿舍,老人還有專人照顧。而父母不在身邊的、未成年的孩子們則住學生宿舍,有叔伯阿姨輔導生活起居,好一幅「老有所終、壯有所用、幼有所長,鰥寡孤獨廢疾者皆有所養」的大同世界景象。
the community operates like a large family. Members manage the income collectively, and together provide for each individual's needs. Families have their own homes, while singles, school-age children, and the elderly each have dormitories. The community's elderly also have personal caretakers, and the school-age kids are watched over by "aunties and uncles."

給你方便,你當隨便

-----------------------------------

Editor:
我曾在醫院中看到過有個婦人對醫院的義工貽使氣指,很不禮貌,旁人亦為之側目,後來出現一位有點年紀看似醫生的人過來跟那位婦人說:「妳看到他們的背心嗎?上面寫著義工,他們沒領醫院薪水,純粹是義務性幫忙,是給妳們方便,不是你的僕人,妳卻隨便的呼來喚去,別把方便當隨便。」,旁邊突然有人帶頭鼓起掌來,頓時掌聲四起,把那位婦人羞得面紅耳赤趕緊落跑。

[...]

社會上有許多像我們一樣做做小公益,與人方便,也給自己方便,偏偏有許多人把方便當隨便,反正不需自己花錢,能用盡量用,不用白不用,不知惜福。

在這社會上有很多人默默的為人群付出,不求回報,我們必須存有感恩、惜福的心念,感激這些人的善意,感恩這些人的與人方便,千萬別把方便當隨便。

"quartier de lune" GRAND RICCI
-----------------------------

Editor: "quartier de la lune" means "quarter moon", the dictionary says:
https://www.linternaute.fr/dictionnaire/fr/definition/quartier-de-la-lune/
But that's ambiguous apparently:

quarter moon
1. The moon as it appears with a quarter of its face illuminated, a crescent moon.
2. A time when the moon is at its first or last quarter; the moon as it appears at such a time (with half its face illuminated).
https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/quarter_moon

But in any case, I have not been able to corroborate Grand Ricci's definition.
On the contrary, everything I find suggests that 月缺 means "new moon".

新月、月缺,指月亮無光之月相,一種天文現象。
https://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E6%96%B0%E6%9C%88

不要伤感。月缺以后会有满月。

然而,只有其中的一位选手 –梁文博 –走到了决赛的最后八强。
However, only one of those players, Liang Wenbo, has made it to the final eight.

简而言之,以他们目前的状态来看,没有哪个队想在八强赛中抽到他们,更别提半决赛了。
In short, on their current form no one will want to draw them in the last eight let alone the semi-finals.

如果你有幸进入到了之后的四强或八强赛,这种经验正是你所需要的。

Saw in my WeChat Moments - the caption said: "做头发走心" and then the comment was said: "不走肾". I would directly translate "不走肾" as "repulsive" but is probably more literally: unseductive(?) or unattractive. WeChat translated it as "non-renal" - which is nice.

As far as I can see, it's almost always verbal, so any noun glosses would be better at the end of the definition. But I think we can do without "fatality". I didn't see that in other dictionaries or in TP ~
- 為不幸在地震中罹難的民眾默哀。
- 一百七十九位鄉親不幸罹難,
- 有五百四十九人因山崩而罹難。
- 因母親、弟弟罹難而返家照顧父親,

This really is just 小+利, but it's in so many dictionaries…
MoE's second sense is much more interesting but I haven't seen it anywhere else.

【Wenlin】
n. small gain; slight profit

【MoE】
1. 微小的利益。
| 《文选.潘岳.马汧督诔》:「忘尔大劳,猜尔小利。」
| 《三国演义.第二一回》:「干大事而惜身,见小利而忘命,非英雄也。」
2. 扒手、小偷。
| 《负曝闲谈.第九回》:「出门的时候,偶然忘记,这回被小利偷去了,才想起来。」也称为「小李」、「小绺」。

【规范】
名 微小的利润或利益



欲速则不达,见小利则大事不成。(不要求快,不要图小利。求快反而不能达到目的;图小利就办不成大事。)
You cannot reach your goal if you want to be quick, and you cannot accomplish great things if you seek petty gains.

渔夫说:“如果我现在放弃手上已经得到的小利而去追求那些虚无渺茫的大利,那我岂不成了傻子了吗?”
The fisherman says: "If I give up the present small profit to seek an uncertain future large one, am I not a fool?"

这个故事说明,愚蠢的人才会放弃已到手的小利,而去追求那些虚无的大利。
This story means: Only a foolish man will give up the litter[sic] profit which he has and seek uncertain future large profits.
---------------------------------------

Editor:
"in so many dictionaries"?
I didn't find it in any other dictionary, and I checked some big ones like New Century, Key and Grand Ricci.

We don't have to have a word just because it's in other dictionaries. In particular, Wenlin includes quite a few words that we wouldn't.

The last example (这个故事说明...) includes the word 大利, which isn't in any of the three dictionaries that you mentioned, nor in any other dictionary I checked. I don't think that makes it difficult to understand the sentence. Here's another one: 專營貿易而獲大利,... I don't feel I need to check the dictionary about that last word.

"This really is just 小+利."
That seems to be the case.

Both Wenlin and Pleco have "reform". 改良 is a common translation for reform.

改良主义 is reformism
Hu Shi wrote文学改良刍议, "Attempting Discussion of Literary Reform", in one translation.
etc.
--------------------------------

Editor: I propose to keep the glosses as verbs, and leave its use as a noun or adjective implicit.
(adj. - reformed) 稱這新創改良調的歌仔戲為「改良戲」("Reformed Opera")
(verb - to reform) 脱贫的根本在于改良社会制度

I also indicated that 改良 is used transitively.

Tradition attributes its compilation to Confucius but this is not likely to be the case. MoE has “孔子据鲁史修订而成,为编年体史书。” but LAC correctly states “相传孔子据鲁史修订而成。”--相传--; 规范词典 agrees: “相传是孔子根据鲁史修订而成”. I don't think there is a need to discuss the authorship of an ancient text like this in the dictionary.


In ancient times it was believed that Confucius had revised the annals of Lu and so created the Spring and Autumn Annals. Confucius himself hailed from the state of Lu, and when Confucianism was made the state doctrine of the Han 漢 (206 BCE-220 CE) empire, authorship of the Annals was attributed to him.
【Chunqiu 春秋 and Zuozhuan 左傳】http://www.chinaknowledge.de/Literature/Classics/chunqiuzuozhuan.html

Because it was traditionally regarded as having been compiled by Confucius (after a claim to this effect by Mencius), it was included as one of the Five Classics of Chinese literature.

In the last edit, Yves replied: "not a noun, doesn't need caps, and certainly doesn't mean bathroom."

But there are plenty of examples where it is clearly used as a noun, including many where I can't quite think what else it could mean, other than "bathroom".
你当然可以用减少卧室面积的代价来扩建卫浴, 但是没有其它办法么?
https://baike.baidu.com/item/%E5%8D%AB%E6%B5%B4
"不带通风窗的卫浴必须安装排风扇;"
"那么,如何装修卫浴?"
(etc, too many occurrences of the word as a noun in the article)
----------------------------------------

Editor: True. I suppose it became a noun in the same way "weekly" came to mean "a weekly newspaper or periodical".
i.e. by a process of (possibly gradual) abbreviation, like this
衛浴空間 --> 衛浴間 --> 衛浴

You can still use the longer forms of the word:
a) 每個樓層都有數間衛浴間、洗衣與曬衣的空間、

b) 衛浴空間再小都得有女性愛用的泡澡浴缸,
The bathrooms, though small, all have tubs.


Similarly, "vanity cabinet" or "vanity unit" is now usually just "a vanity".

Q. ”硬底子”是啥意思?
A1. 戲劇中重要的配角具有真實本領或演技的藝人
A2. 很有實力的意思

硬底子女演員高幸枝,
and stalwarts such as actress Kao Hsin-chih

這3位硬底子實力派演員中,又以蔣武童最年長、名聲最響亮,生命歷程也最具戲劇性。

影帝由在大陸政治宣傳片《集結號》裡飾演國共內戰中共解放軍小連長的硬底子演員張涵予獲得;
The year's king of film was Zhang Hanyu, who played a liberation army captain during the Chinese Civil War in the mainland Chinese political propaganda film Assembly.

许俊豪虽然不是帅哥型,但可是韩国数一数二的硬底子演员,

在三百多公里的進香旅程中,二十個轎伕分成兩班,一路扛著媽祖的鑾轎前行,這可說是一項最硬底子、最神聖的任務。
For the 300-kilometer journey, the 20 bearers were split into two squads. This sacred duty is handled only by those physically able.
