兴高采烈 (xìnggāocǎiliè) In High Spirit/ Overjoyed (Advanced)

Apr. 12, 2010

兴高采烈 (xìnggāocǎiliè) In High Spirit/ Overjoyed (Advanced)

 

When the character “兴 (xìng)” takes the falling tone, it means happy. But when it is pronounced as “xīng” it means to flourish. “高 (gāo)” means high. “采 (cǎi)” means to gather. “烈 (liè)” means violent.

Example:

A: Nǐ  jīntiān zuò shénme shìr  dōu xìnggāocǎiliè de. Yǒu shénme xǐshìr  ma?
    你  今天  做     什么     事儿  都     兴高采烈     的。有    什么     喜事儿  吗?

 

It seems that you are in high spirit the whole day. Anything good happening?

B: Wǒ de nǚpéngyou dāyìng wǒ de qiúhūn le. Wǒ  tài gāoxìng le.
    我   的   女朋友       答应     我  的 求婚    了。我  太 高兴    了。

 

My girlfriend agreed to marry me. I’m so excited.
