First of all, we are an online Chinese language school: We teach Mandarin Chinese, not necessarily manners. But perhaps you’ve arrived at this article through a Google search “the meaning of NMSL in Chinese”, so we want to help you answer it! In any case, we advice you not to use this word, or if you must, use it sparingly!
What NMSL means in Chinese
In 2015, a construction worker from Sichuan played a game of League of Legends and live-streamed it on Dòuyú 斗鱼. From there a heated discussion started, and the NMSL phrase was uttered and used ever since. It is often used online as a swear word, using NMSL rather than the Chinese Hanzi characters. Other variations also exist, like 马Mǎ to replace 妈Mā, and $ to replace the S in NMSL.
Years have passed but NMSL is still a popular word, still in use today — and it now even has a song dedicated to NMSL, and you can buy NMSL clothes on Taobao, although we don’t dare to walk on the street with NMSL printed on it (nor do we advise you to do it).
