Last week I published another Chinese translation puzzle, and this week I am proud to announce that the winner is Julia W.... and my entire Wordplay class. Looks like I've finally made a puzzle that's easier for native Chinese speakers than the other way around! Yeah!
Anyway, the answers are:
1. animal (4):
Nose loves ear flute = 鼻爱耳笛 = BIRD
2. vegetable (4, 4):
Fart cancer peace meaning; ladder son one chair = 屁癌安意；梯儿一椅 = PINE TREE
3. mineral (4):
Two fish pen outside = 二鱼笔外 = RUBY
Speaking of puzzles, it's Melbourne University Maths Society Puzzle Hunt time! Still time to sign up if you haven't already...
