殭屍 = 殭+屍   jiāng+ shī

[jiāng] /[ㄐㄧㄤ]  - adj - dead and stiff [shī]  /  [ㄕ]         -N-  a corpse

Although zombies and Chinese vampires are written the same in Chinese. 雖然殭屍跟中國吸血鬼用的是同一個中文詞, They are actually very different. 他們其實是很不同的. Not like the cannibalistic zombies, Chinese zombies areblood-sucking monsters. 不像食人殭屍,中國殭屍是吸血的怪物。 That is why they ares translated into “Chinese Vampires” or “ the jumping dead” in English. 它通常被翻譯成" 中國吸血鬼" 或是 " 跳屍".
