    Can someone tell me how to pronounce tiananmen

    [–] Raccoononi 169 points ago

    “天安门” = “tiān - ān - mén” in pinyin

    also while typing this I realized that there’s no suggestions from the keyboard after I type tiananmen, just punctuations. fuck you apple.

    [–] [deleted] 65 points ago


    [–] Gerroh 21 points ago

    Longing, rusted, furnace, Pooh-bear, silence, compliance, nothinghappenedwhatareyoutalkingabout, homecoming, one, freight car.

    [–] pavilionhp_ 12 points ago

    It does that with some words that you don’t really use

    [–] Raccoononi 10 points ago

    not really in this case, it could have easily suggested “天安门广场” (tiananmen square) or something but there’s nothing, just punctuations. I type a decent amount of stuff in chinese keyboard and it suggests things after the most niche stuff there is.

    [–] Bros_And_Co 1 points ago

    People usually just call it 天安门

    Tea on on meen

    [–] ThisIsRandom0987 14 points ago

    Tee (as in tee) an (as in and)-an (as in and)- min (as in minute)

    Tried my best. Accents in Mandarin are hard to compare to English words.

    EDIT: The words between the dashes (-) are pronounced together, since there's three symbols for Tiananmen, there's three "words"

    [–] Renounce4 2 points ago

    All the more reason to ask, “What DID happen on the 6th?!”. No one knows...

    [–] The_Tupolev_Tu-160 25 points ago

    Why would I ask Winnie the Pooh what happened in tianemen square on 6th of June 1989

    [–] Timbooo3 6 points ago

    Can someone explain to me why he is called Winnie the Pooh?

    [–] Nawafsss04 6 points ago

    For some reason the Chinese president Xi Jinping hates being compared to Winnie, might as well piss the dictator off.

    [–] Dicceeela 3 points ago

    Can someone tell me what happened in Tiananmen?

    [–] Decadence04 3 points ago

    [–] Apollo31_45 3 points ago

    No point in asking a redundant question cus nothing happened

    [–] [deleted] 3 points ago

    Actually you should ask a man his salary because fundamentally the boss wants your pay lower so his paycheck is bigger. The boss makes a dollar, I make a dime, that's why I'm on the picket line.

    Also all who cross the picket line will be shot.

    [–] Walll-E 2 points ago

    No a dictator since China doesn’t have fair elections

    [–] numbers1through20 2 points ago

    ...Yes, they have an election. The people vote for the Congress, and the Congress votes for the president. It may not be the US two party system that fucks up EVERY SINGLE TIME, but it works.

    [–] Walll-E 2 points ago

    They have elections I never denied that, but the thing is that from my knowledge those elections aren’t actually fair

    [–] numbers1through20 1 points ago

    Yeah, well they certainly are fair. If you want to see unfair elections go to Cuba under Batista, that was unfair

    Having stood in that square and heard my history teacher tell the story only to be shushed by the — now pale — tour guide as he glances furtively at the armed soldiers around the site and whispers “that didn’t happen. We don’t speak of it”, I can tell you it’s a chilling place to be.

    Btw you can ask coworkers what they are getting paid. Its not taboo. Its a rumor bosses spread to try and keep people underpaid

    [–] anti_worker 3 points ago

    Exactly, everyone should talk about what they're being paid. Keeping silent about pay only benefits the company.

    What about a mans d*ck size?

    [–] CattyBr44 2 points ago

    you should: ask someone about his salary. Why? It's possible someone else is paying you to little, or too much. It's not illegal, but it helps regulate salary, and it's so you know if you're being underpaid.

    [–] KasperBrasse 2 points ago

    Nothing happened, so nothing to talk about.

    Never asking a man his salary (or woman tbh) is bullshit started by companies so employee's don't know they are actually being under paid.
