Please, neither I nor Google have any idea…

哩就親秋幾勒喳某
Li jiù qīn qiū jǐ lēi zhā mǒu

Is lēi zhā mǒu it crazy talk for are you tired?

Is this Cantonese?

“You’re [acting] like a girl”

It’s Taiwanese – though the characters and Romanization are messed up.

Here’s a translation into more standard characters:

汝就親像一ê查某.

[The “ê” is pronounced as “lei” in some variants of Taiwanese.]

ohhhhhhhhhhhh! I was wondering what the zhamou was meant to be XD

Isn’t that ‘crazy bitch’ rather than girl?

And those characters are just being used phonetically. Like when people say 搜利 for sorry and whatnot…

汝就親像一ê查某.
lí tio̍h tshin-tshiūⁿ tsi̍t-ê tsa-bó͘. <-- Correct Tai-lo romanization.

You are acting like a girl
or
You remind me of a girl/You look like this girl

“查某 (tsa-bó͘)” is the standard Taiwanese (Minnan) term for “girl” (“woman”). It’s completely neutral. There is no implication of crazy or bitch, although depending on what neighborhood you live in you may often hear the term spoken with choice adjectives in front of it to convey those meanings.

And in the context of the quote in the OP, the intent may not have been neutral (e.g. if the phrase were directed at a man).

In Taiwanese,it almost means that you look like a woman.

When I view the romanized Taiwanese on this forum, I get some missing characters:

However, if I copy and paste to Word I get…

…so I think I have the correct font. Is there a setting on this forum I can change to be able to see the missing characters? (Sorry for my lack of tech skills)

What type of machine are you using to browse Forumosa? If Windows, what version?

Solutions:

  1. Use Linux, or Mac if you must, total support for Unicode
  2. Don’t use IE, it’s bad for you, Firefox or chrome are way better
  3. Change the default font in your browser preference
  4. Set your regedit font settings to use Unicode font as fall back.

I have Windows 7, using Chrome as my browser.

I went into the Chrome font settings and changed them all to Arial Unicode, and website encoding to UTF-8.

The POJ characters appear normal on everything else I’ve tried, like my blog, but still don’t appear correctly for me on this forum.

Oh well, it’s not a big deal. Thanks for the suggestions.

It could be this forum sets a default font (i’m guessing it’s standard Arial).

Judging by this thread, apparently only Firefox and Opera are truly Unicode friendly.

⎋ <-- the guy asks why he couldn’t see this glyph in Chrome, some dude tested and shows only Firefox and Opera can display it correctly (i have no problem seeing that glyph with (firefox).

It’s the escape glyph for Mac OS I guess…

The two solutions in this looks promising.

I tried the above fixes but still no go. I just downloaded Firefox and checked and can see the characters on this forum just fine, so must be a Chrome thing like you said.

No biggie.

yep, now I remember back when I was still using Windows, I had the same issue with Chrome, that’s a big part of why I never switched to Chrome.

Though Chrome shows unicode just fine on Linux, and I’ve been using Linux since 2008/04, so maybe it isn’t a good enough excuse…
