hi , teacher
whats the meaning of shifu
Tell your shifu to discard her plan
-Otherwise she would be disappointed
-She would not abandoned her plan
-I have to report to my shifu tomorrow
-I can take you back to meet my shifu
***** NOT A TEACHER *****
(1) I am very disappointed that none of our Chinese friends have answered (as I type this).
(2) I know a little (VERY little) Chinese.
(a) Where did you get this conversation from?
(b) Does it refer to a situation in China?
(3) IF it does refer to China, then I can tell you what my books say:
(a) "shifu" means a skilled craftsman. Someone who knows his trade very well.
(i) In your conversation, someone says: "I have to report to my shifu tomorrow." Does that mean he has to report to someone who will teach him some kind of skill?
(ii) Yes, the dictionaries say that "shifu" also means "teacher," but maybe not the kind of teacher in an organized school. For example, if you want to cook well, a chef can be your "teacher."
My books tell me that today "shifu" in China is a polite way to speak with anyone (male or female) who helps you. If a mechanic fixes your car, you can call him "shifu." You can even use "shifu" to address a person who sells you a newspaper. It's very polite to use "shifu" because you are saying s/he is a "master" at whatever job s/he does.
Let's hope that some Chinese friends answer you. And can you give us more details? Is this conversation from a film? Does it have a Chinese background? The shifu is a lady. What job does she have?
