What is the language used by our BDH in the show? Is it Chinese (if it is a real lang.). I only ask because in the "other forums section" there is firefly Chinese..

It's supposedly Mandarin Chinese, but between the phrases that the writers came up with and the pronunciation of the actors, it's really what Mandarin Chinese would be if written by Americans and pronounced by Canadians while living somewhere in a different universe 500 years into the future.

Dong ma?

In the show Mandarin except for the ship’s “Bitching Betty” in Out of Gas, which was in Cantonese. In the movie one little bit of Russian shows up at the end of the Maidenhead Bar scene.

Anyone know of a list of all the phrases they use and their translations?
Just for the purpose of being absurdly geeky, I wanna know what they mean.

Kaneman and everyone else,
don't forget to drop by the translation post area. We have a nice shiny post going on how to cuss in different languages. My contribution of course is in Japanese language.
