Chinese scholars debate alternative English translation 'loong' for China's 'dragon'

For centuries, China's iconic mythological creature long has been translated as "dragon" in English. However, long in China is actually quite different from dragons in the West. In China, long is usually seen as an amiable and auspicious animal while dragons in the West are usually depicted as dangerous monsters like the dragon from the Old English epic Beowulf or high fantasy novel The Lord of the Rings. For this reason, some scholars have proposed using 'loong' in English when talking about the Chinese dragon.
