One of the beautiful aspects of the Chinese language is its allegorical sayings. Like





set phrases, allegorical sayings

enrich daily Chinese conversation and make the people who use them sound more intelligent. Many of these expressions make allegorical references to religion, history, legends, or folklore.

Allegory in common acknowledges as a figurative sentence or discourse, in which the principal subject is described by another subject resembling it in its properties and circumstances.

Allegorical sayings come in two parts. The first part is an


(such as 八仙过海, “Eight Immortals cross the ocean”) and the second part is an


that describes the context you’re in (such as 各显神通, “each displays his/her unique talents”). This particular allegory is rooted in Daoism.

Some allegorical sayings rely on homophones. For example, 打破沙锅,问到底 is a homophone of 打破沙锅,璺到底. The first part means “break the earthenware pot”. As for the second part, just by changing one character, the meaning changes from “crack it right through” to “get to the bottom of this issue”. Therefore, saying the first part, “break the earthenware pot” can be an allusion to “get to the bottom of this issue” in Chinese conversation. The Chinese adore homophones.
