Lob = a Lift played from the forecourt, close to the net ?
"Base Position = (For Singles Games) is the middle position between the net and the back line, and the middle position between the side lines"
That definition is not so popular in DK, at least not anymore, it is more common to talk about a "floating Base", depending on how the game evolve!

To some, "Half Smash" = A smash (shot) made with reduced power/speed; causing the shuttlecock to land nearer to the Service line of the opponents' court, than to the middle.
To some, "Half Smash" = "Sliced/Cut Smash" = A smash (stroke) hit at the side of the shuttlecock (to cause the feathers to rotate); therefore causing the trajectory of the shot to dip down suddenly.

A stroke made "Over the head" is commonly called an "Overhead Stroke".
A "Round the Head" stroke is usually meant to hit an "Overhead Stroke" in a forehand manner, even though the point of impact made with the shuttlecock is high above the head at the backhand space of a player.

A Lift is usually played from the forecourt
In Tennis, from any area of our court, most players can lift/lob a Tennis ball high up in the air, causing it to land at the back of our opponents' court.
In Badminton, most players cannot lift/lob a shuttlecock high up in the air causing it to land at the back of our opponents' court, if we played it from the back of our court. Therefore, a "quality" lift/lob in Badminton is usually played from our forecourt, close to the net.

Hope to find a clearer explanation of the term "Floating Base"
08-11-2010, 04:53 AM #61
Well, floating point, was just a fast translation of the "concept", which is about how alexh describes it! I don't think it is a official term, Floating area might be better...
Instead of thinking just in distance in relation to being placed in the middle of the court, this area takes into account time, both time for you to reach the corners, but also the time for the shuttle to travel from the opponents racket to wherever it is suppose to travel!
Also, it is common that players do move faster forward than backward, therefore the base in general is closer to the back court. Therefore the exact mathematically measurement of the "middle" of the court, we/I don't really use that.

As for the definition, i think that pretty much defines it. Putting the shuttle in particular spaces of the court (in doubles play, often in that space in between the server and his/her partner). It's kinda a tactical way to get the shot that you want by setting up your opponent to hit a shuttle where s/he is not comfortable in.
How about Split?

Split = Sometimes called "Scissors Jump"
Since you are based in the USA, I just thought you are talking about terms used in the USA.
But it does not mean that you are required to tell us USA specific terms. Since you are from Indonesia, perhaps those terms used;
* Wood Shot
are commonly in Indonesia.
But, we need you to explain the terms for us.
Split = Sometimes called "Scissors Jump". Meaning jumping in the air; splitting the legs when hitting an Overhead shot.
Carry = A scooping action on a shuttlecock during a stroke production. Some Australians call it a "Scoop".
Wood Shot = When the shuttlecock is struck by the frame of the racket-head. "Frame Shot" is now gradually replacing this term.
You tell us what they mean (USA or INA or elsewhere). Otherwise, AUS Badminton terms would dominate this thread; which we do not wish this to happen.
