Maybe this is just me being really nitpicky, but have you ever thought about the official term for the national language that the Chinese government uses? It's "Hanyu," which roughly translates into "language of the Hans." It strikes me as odd to use a term that is so tied to ethnicity when there are so many other terms that could be utilized. But I think too much.

Garbage just used "pugilist" in this song. I could get to love this band.
