How do you say"舌頭咬破一個洞"in English? :shock:
A "cut" or a "wound" on my tongue?
I suffered from the wound several days :cry:
It was very inconvenient when eating or talking.

Dear Celia,
We all suffer from tongue ulcer problem now and then. The most effective treatment for this is to take B-complex tablets and vitamin tablets. Take care.

Other than ulcer, sore might work as well.

Dear Rock,
You'd better tell the truth. It was your girlfriend who bit your tongue, wasn't it? Admit it! :mrgreen:

What if it's just a cut, without bacteria or virus infection, is it still called ulcer? Or it's just a cut?

How to say "舌頭咬破一個洞"?
In my opinion, just say
"I had a big tongue bite"
If you really want to mention "洞", you can say
"I had a big tongue bite and found one bump there"

Normally there is just a "bump", not a "hole" as biting the tongue.
In Mandarin, we used to mention "洞", but it's a little weird to mention "hole" in English.

bradywang 寫:"I had a big tongue bite"
If you really want to mention "洞", you can say
"I had a big tongue bite and found one bump there"



"have/take a bite" means you eat something.

"bite" can mean a small hole made where an animal or insect has bitten you
sentence: The infection is passed by the bite of a mosquito.
snake, ant...... bites
(Longman dictionary of contemporary English Online)

So I feel "I had a big tongue bite" is weird.

How about I bit my own tongue and there is a big painful sore there?

Have an ulcer is quite different from biting one's tongue.

I've got a bitten tongue

文章ForgottenName » 週五 5月 30, 2008 6:49 pm

I think we can simply say I've got a bitten tongue. It is a little bit painful.

you bite your tongue or I bite my tongue means you/I'd be better stop speaking even though you/I feel you/I want to.
