關於Mandarin Culture的問題(急,20點)

我現在美國讀高中,有一堂課要我們每個人找一個特別的CULTURE當作報告的題目,

CULTURE可以是一個文化甚至是指一個特別的族群(ex:BOBO,HIPPIES)

因為真的想不出來要選甚麼當主題,所以選擇了Mandarin

請大家給我一些有關介紹Mandarin Culture的文章或是影片(盡量提供youtube影片)

請不要提供電影,也不要維基百科的資料哦

簡單明瞭的最好,資料影片都要是英文的哦!!

或是可以提供我一些其他的族群當作題目(一樣需要影片,文章)

希望大家可以幫我想一想

謝謝:)

Update:

我想把mandarin culture的焦點放在"中國字"上面哦(也就是我們輸寫的文字上)

    「Mandarin Culture」是個範圍很寬的主題,參考一下【http://www.culturemark.com/】、【zh.wikipedia.org/wik...

    Chinese characters (known in Chinese as 漢字, in simplified characters 汉字) have a very long history.

    Chinese characters have been classified into six categories: (參考「http://fog.ccsf.cc.ca.us/~jliou/ch_written_system/...

    1、Pictograms(象形) - imitating the form of concrete object (4%)

    2、Ideograms(會意) - the symbols of abstracts notions (1%)

    3、Composite Ideograms(指事) - understanding the meaning (13%)

    4、Composite Phonograms(形聲) - using of one component to indicate meaning and the other to indicate sound of the character (82%)

    5、Mutually Defining(轉注) - using of synonymous characters

    6、Borrowing(假借) – concerning the loan of hormophones

    Chinese calligraphy(書法) development history:

    1、Oracle Bone Inscription,甲骨文;1800-1122 BC

    2、Bronze Inscription,鐘鼎文(金文);1122-249 BC

    3、Seal – Style;篆書;221-206 BC

    4、Clerical – Style;隸書;221-209 BC

    5、Standard - Style;楷書;221-580 AD

    6、Running – Style;行書;265–313 AD

    7、Cursive - Style;草書;BC 60

    Today upwards of 50,000 characters have been recorded, although many are simply variants. Around 7,000 characters are actually in use in the modern language, of which only about 3,000-4,000 are needed to read books and newspapers. The creation of new characters has effectively ceased and it is unlikely that many will be added to the current stock.

    In the 20th century, China simplified the traditional characters extensively in order to promote literacy. These simplified characters are used in Mainland China and Singapore, but the traditional characters are still used in Taiwan and Hong Kong.
