OT: Junk

From:Andreas Johansson <andjo@...>

I was recently told that "junk" is the general Chinese term for "ship".

I thought this would be the best forum I've got access to to learn i) if
that's true, ii) if so, do the Chinese have a special term for the ship-types
we westerners call "junks" and iii) from what kind of Chinese is the
word "junk" derived - it does not look much Mandarinesque.
