I love that word Chinglish - it's the first time I've heard it!Thank you, tepatria.
Yes, I presume it means "a fierce scolding." I wonder if "a fierce lecture" is Chinglish.
I like that too, depending on what the child did and what the mother had to say. A scolding is stronger than a lecture, a lecture is longer than a lesson in this context.Thanks, tepatria.
So it does sound good.
By the way, if I say "a fierce lesson" instead, does it sound right?
