[quote=RITA ,21588]Well, May & Calif, that's interesting to get deeper inside...I guess, in remote ancient times, the coverage and population were very small and limited. Largely on the piece of land we call "中原" - that's around Henan Province, right? People then never saw real sea or ocean, so when they found so big land covered by water, they called "海", similarly, many inland lakes got the name of **海. Later, the coverage of China got extended year by year, people started to find some water area really, really big, much bigger than "海", they were so excited then that they can not find a proper name to describe it. So, they borrowed/ or bobbed "海" which meant "lake or 湖" to describe SEA, and later, invented another word "湖" to describe the inland lakes which was nothing compared with real Sea, but taken so big before they saw real SEA.This must be a great leap forward at that time, people first started to know, if something is big, there must be something bigger..., and probably never say anything is "the biggest"...[/quote]
