Subject: Taiwanese intensifiers
NOTE: You must switch the text encoding to "Traditional Chinese" to see the Chinese characters below.
I've begun studying Taiwanese and Judy and I noticed a trend in intensifiers at least the way the I-Lan County residents speak. Here are the characters also that go with them curtesy of Rev. Edward Tanng.
I do not even see "chia" in the two Taiwanese-English dictionaries though I hear it a lot in I-Lan.
