English to Chinese translations [PRO] Linguistics / Taiwanese Hokkien vocabulary
English term or phrase:advocate
Hi. I am interested in Taiwanese Hokkien and I would like to know, how do you say, "advocate" in Taiwanese Hokkien?
advocate-a supporter, a person who is in favour (of)
Example: an advocate of reform
I have heard the word used in newspapers and in television in this context.
Sorry for the late response. I think both 主倡者 and 提倡者 will do, after looking up Google. I am not native speaker of Taiwanese, so I'm not sure if it's right. And I believe "Wenjer Leuschel" would be glad to help, since he is a local resident in Taiwan. :-)
