Boss Cow Miscellaneous Soup 老大牛杂汤
interesting one. Each char literally means this:
- 老 = old,senior.
- 大 = big.
- 牛 = bull, cow.
- 杂 = mixed
- 汤 = soup
but depending on grouping, there can be several literal interpretations.
- 老大 = boss.
- 老大牛 = old bull/cow
- 牛杂汤 = a dish name, a soup made of bull's organs.
- (老大)(牛杂汤) = big boss's bull organ soup
- (老大牛)(杂汤) = senior bull's mixed soup
and other artificial groupings.
Chinese is quite subtle and fluid. The associativity of characters is based on past usage or idioms.
