This is my self-introduction. I’m a 69 year old American. In 2004, I could not say, “你好” or “Hello” in Chinese. But I wanted to talk with Chinese people without using an interpreter. I’m currently using pinyin to write Chinese and am not using computer translation. I can write Chinese very fast, but not very well. I visited China four times from 2014 to 2019.
I did not invent the name Sedgehead. Botanists call people who study sedges “sedgeheads” in the same way that people who work on motors are called “motorheads.” I don’t know another word that uses “heads” in this way. I had been called a sedgehead when I started studying sedges in 1991, and decided in 1995 it would be a unique name on the internet! So, I just started using it.:)。
