    .猶言王者
    another word for the king
    .對宮闈近侍的尊稱
    honorific title for a personal attendant in the palace chambers
    .指世家豪右
    refers to a rich and powerful aristocratic family
    .指德行高尚、志趣高遠的人
    refers to someone with high moral, high conduct and aspirations
    .對老者、長者的敬稱
    respectful title for the elder people
    .對父母叔伯等長輩的敬稱。《史記。
    respectful title for parents, uncles etc., the elder generation
    .指成年人。
    . refers to adults
