Thread: Mantis Glossary of Terminology

Threaded View

  1. #16
    I saw this thread and decided to add some of the details I know. Below are some of the concepts for 7*PM. The romanizations for everything are Yale Cantonese as I find it the easiest to maintain correct pronunciation. Cantonese also stays true to the 7*'s Hong Kong lineage.

    IMPORTANT: Do not read too much into the English translations. I wrote them in a manner that would be easiest for me to remember what they are, but they are not fully encompassing of the principle they describe. I truly feel that in order to completely describe the principle you'd need to write pages of text!
