I have some questions about the origin of some characters and phrases but I'm not sure it's on topic.
Sometimes I see a character and wonder how it got its meaning. For example, how 'I' (我) is made from 'spear' (戈) and 'hand' (手).
Other times I have questions about the cultural reason for a phrase, for example why 没关系 means "no problem". This example could be answered by discussing today's culture in China but what about questions which refer to ancient culture that is no longer present in China- are they still on topic?
