That’s right! This is the FINAL “Word of the Day”! Clearly I can’t go on forever, and I figured one thousand three hundred and eighteen is a nice round number to stop at. Or it may have something to do with the new year and all that. Happy 2007, by the way!
Here are a few sites for those of you who need some help breaking the addiction: our old favorite 中文.com (has a word a day feature), Oneaday (a Chinese proverb every day), and Audio Word of the Day (multi-lingual!).
I’ll still be here, of course, posting my normal stuff, possibly a little more often. Some of them might even be Chinese words … just not one every day.
Thanks to everybody who has ever read even a single one of these, and special thanks to everybody who wrote in saying they liked “Word of the Day”. I was always amazed to get any readers at all other than friends and family, and pretty much flabbergasted when anybody actually LIKED it.
再見！ – Zai4 Jian4! – Good Bye!
