Hmmmm ... So eight ideograms end up translated to two English words. Either there is MAJOR cultural/linguistic transformation contained within the translation, or there is a major-league shell-game going on by the translator. Congratulations to you for creating so worthy an intellectual stalking horse! The Dungeon scholarly entities are intrigued; we will begin our investigation of this worthy question after we wrap up the nightly embezzlement count.
