      Great idea!


      Cantonese TT terms (from 1980's, not sure if terms are still in use, although speaking to some of the members of my club, they understand me)

      Please keep in mind that some of the Jyutping/Cantonese transliteration into English doesn't include tones ... some people say Cantonese uses 6 tones, some say a little more

      Penhold - Jihk baan (straight board) aka Ci gang baan (spoon board - as if one is holding a spoon)
      Shakehand - Waang baan (horizontal board)
      Racket - Baan (board)
      FH - Gin sau (real/true hand) I think that is "gin" is the transliteration of 'real/true" ??
      BH - Faan sau (reverse hand)
      Topspin - Soeng syun (up revolve/spin)
      Downspin - Haa syun (down revolve/spin)

      I'm sure there Chinese members who can add in the Mandarin and/or more Cantonese and correct me if I am wrong.


      Don't have time now to copy over, there are some Chinese terms in Mandarin here: http://mytabletennis.net/forum/forum....asp?TID=12903

      New mantra: I should rather return one more ball and maybe get killed than kill myself and not make the shot.
