  • #todaysoffice made even better with a Manjhou beer (yes, even though the locals claim they are the "remotest administrative division in Taiwan" they've got several lovely local beers. Manjhou (满洲) by the way, borrows the same characters as Manchuria, but got them by accident as the original name is Manutsuru. This name comes from the native Formosan language of Paiwan, but it does sort of sound like Japanese might have already done some damage to it before it was first recorded (it is likely that it was first written in Japanese as Paiwan has no writing system of its own). The name did then go through a few more Japanese iterations, during Japanese rule, until arriving at its current Chinese pronunciation. It supposedly means "stinky" because the aboriginals did a lot of hunting but didn't yet know how to preserve meat. By the way, the Paiwan language is one of the closest Austronesian languages to Proto-Austronesian (think Italian is to Latin) meaning it is vital to linguists as they attempt to reconstruct the origins of language in this part of the world. #becauselinguistics #linguistics #linguists #workanywhere #taiwan #manjhou #digitalnomadlife #digitalnomads
