Shanghai


The two Chinese words that make up the word ‘Shanghai’ translate into the English language as ‘above the sea’. This translation refers to the fact that the port city once stood on mudflats, barely situated above sea level. Meanwhile, in the West the name of the city was turned over time into a verb: ‘shanghaied, shanghaiing’. The dictionary describes this nautical term as follows: ‘to enrol or obtain (a sailor) for the crew of a ship by unscrupulous means, as by force or the use of liquor or drugs.’
