What do you do when simple words like "yes" and "no" open up a language pandora's box? You adjust, just as Tanya Crossman has. Here she is explaining the differences between these two words in Mandarin Chinese and English.

What is happening on Geopats Podcast this month (November 2019)?
All month I will be doing a range of experimental micro episodes about language. The main focus, as usual in our language show, will be on Mandarin Chinese but I make zero promises to stick to one language. In fact, I fully expect that I will swerve towards and away from other languages throughout the month as well. This experimentation is part of National Podcast Posting Month, NaPodPoMo (it's international really but it started nationally in the U.S. many years ago so the name stuck) http://napodpomo.org/, https://www.facebook.com/groups/napodpomo/ and http://www.rssmix.com/u/9742423/rss.xml
Oh, and I will make reference to my language YouTube channel so here is that link as well https://www.youtube.com/channel/UClzR7HySZTVb6g-tSzAhi5A
