WHAT DOES WUNDERKIND MEAN IN ENGLISH?
A child prodigy or Wunderkind is a person who, at an early age, develops one or more skills at a level far beyond the norm for their age. A prodigy has to be a child, or at least younger than 18 years, who is performing at the level of a highly trained adult in a very demanding field of endeavour. The giftedness of prodigies is determined by the degree of their talent relative to their ages. Examples of particularly extreme prodigies could include Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Teresa Milanollo in music, Bobby Fischer, Magnus Carlsen, Sergey Karjakin, Paul Morphy and José Capablanca in chess, Carl Friedrich Gauss, Shakuntala Devi, Srinivasa Ramanujan, John von Neumann and Terence Tao in mathematics, Pablo Picasso and Wang Ximeng in art, Paul Thomas Anderson and Xavier Dolan in film direction, and Saul Kripke in philosophy. There is controversy as to at what age and standard to use in the definition of a prodigy. The term Wunderkind is sometimes used as a synonym for “prodigy”, particularly in media accounts. Wunderkind also is used to recognize those who achieve success and acclaim early in their adult careers.
