- man, husband; porter

I have started to read (and to try to translate) some Japanese children's stories (日本童话), which are, as it happens, written in Chinese. I have just started 小熊午夫的故事, which I think translates as The Tale of Little Bear Wufu. I haven't got very far yet, all I know is that 午夫 is finding it too hot ("热死啦!").

夫妇, meaning husband or wife, is in the first line of Harry Potter.

At number 4 Privet Drive, lived Mr and Mrs Dursley, who always proudly said that they were a very upstanding family, thank you very much.
