I don't know exactly what do you mean by "meaningless", but the sentence would definitely sound weird without “很”. (I wouldn't really use the word "meaningless", because basically every character in Chinese comes with a certain "meaning", no?) “的” is necessary in this constellation with “会”. 她肯定很高兴。 She is for sure very happy. or 她肯定会很高兴的。 She would ...

Obviously, this is a tricky one. I know these three phrases have some same words and looks no differences for foreigner, but they are very different! If I give you one example for each phrase, you still will get confused when you meet a different one, so I'm gonna show you how to fishing instead of just give you a fish, in another word, master those three ...

Actually, "在我们村里有一所中学" is the equivalent Chinese expression of "There is a middle school in our village." And the equivalent English expression of "我们村里有一所中学" should be "Our village have a middle school." "在我们村里有一所中学" often used in written language, if you mean spoken language, "我们村里有一所中学" is more often used than "在我们村里有一所中学".

Most Chinese prepositions are also verbs. For example: 在: to be (at) (verb), at (preposition) 跟: to follow (verb), with (preposition) 给: to give (verb), to, for (preposition) etc. For that reason, they do carry their verb features even when acting as prepositions. And for what I've seen since I started studying Chinese, the first verb is always the one ...

Basicly they have the same meaning, but the former is a litter more formal. And in spoken language the latter is often used because the former twist the tongue a little bit.

All of it is correct. These two styles is loaned,「」 from Japanese,"" and 《》are from western countries. Chinese original marks 句读 are deprecated。 In mainland, the usages of "" are identical to English. You can also use 「」 instead, especially in vertical text. though it is not very popular ,but definitely acceptable. ﹏﹏ is used in ancient texts.I have ...

I don't know the Traditional, but in Simplified , “” and 《》 is the formal way.

之 is a common way to say ‘him/her/it’ in classical Chinese. It’s usually in the object position, not the subject one though: 殺之 ‘kills him’; 由之 ‘from it’. The use like modern Chinese 的 is different. 其 is actually a possessive pronoun, as in 其妻 ‘his wife’. More generally, it substitutes for ‘noun + 之’. 彼 can be used as a third-person pronoun in ...

Here 道 means 黑道, 黑社会 (underworld). So xxx 也是道上的人物 means xxx is the member of some underworld organization. 道下 is not a word.

参与,亦作“参预”或“参豫”。预闻而参议其事; 参与,also as “参预” or “参豫”. Listen something and talk about something. 参加。指的是以第二或第三方的身份加入、融入某件事之中。 参加 means join in something as a part of it. So, mostly, 参与 has a meaning of organize some people and plan something, it often has a mean of initiative, such as: 他参与了此次军事行动的谋划工作。(Which means he is one of the commanders.) As for 参加, which ...

The first reason probably is the last part is too long for readers to understand the meaning in a short time. The second possible reason is the focus of the sentence (normally it need to combine the meaning and purpose of whole paragraph or article). By adding a comma there, they are focusing on the how innovative Dangdang is, and the innovations are ...

In your first sentence, the 4th comma is indeed unnecessary. This is what I would write: 在当当网,“创新”是全方位,而俞渝就像心脏一样,源源不断地把创新的血液输送到企业每一个环节。 Your second sentence is grammatically correct, but using the 把 construction is much more natural.

I think you need 'witness' = ‘见证’ 朝鲜战争见证了美国与中国之间的战斗。

我们村里有一所中学 = 在我们村里有一所中学 Both of them are correct. Adding "在" makes it a bit more formal.

In general, 看来=看起来=it seems. You may replace one by the other in most cases. e.g. 看(起)来是我赢了比赛。 It seems I won the game. 看出来=figure out. e.g. 你怎么看出来谁是罪犯? how did you figure out who is the criminal?

跟 is a verb, it means ”follow”. In this context, it is a coverb, and the conclusion follows. Edit: see http://hub.hku.hk/bitstream/10722/133290/3/FullText.pdf page 11, 1.6.2.1 Incapability to occur in A-not-A question: A-not-A is a type of question in Chinese that elicits either an affirmative or negative answer as shown by the question structure (Li ...

Since the container(bottle) of it is like a stick. We use 支 to describe all the stick-like things. Maybe I should post a pic here to help you understand what I'm talking about:

Here,道 means the way people earn their living.It's 白道 if the way is legal and 黑道 if the way is illegal,and 道上的 is a adj phrase which only be used to describe someone having background of gangdom. We don't use 道下的,but you can use the phrase 守法的 if you want to describe person who earn his living legally.

You need to add a '的'after'全方位','全方位'is a noun and '全方位的'is a adj.It doesn't make sence if the word '的' is missing. In addition,you'd better add a '的' afer '企业',because '企业' is a adj here.

I think both sentences are correct in sense but the first one is much more structured, thus easier to read. My mother tongue is (Swiss-)German and I inherently tend to construct rather monstrous sentences and avoid the use of commas as you just did. But fact is, that cases like the sentence from 当当网 are much more comfortable to read and sound more ...

Just trying to put down user330635's comment down as an answer, since wasn't sure the other answer addressed the question correctly. In the sentence: 她肯定会(很)高兴的。 The use of the word 很 is to indicate the degree of the adjective 高兴. She will be (very) happy. Without it the sentence just suggest that the person will be happy, but we do not know if she will ...

Besides above answer, in oral Chinese, they don't have much difference. You can use either one.

The answer by Camila Ting Chen is close. We don't use 再次 in an present active sentence. We use 再次 with some perfectness or passiveness. Such passiveness is not necessarily related to the conjunctive 被 however. A simple rule is when we can say 再 alone, say it alone. 我再次来到这家餐厅。 我时隔数年再次遇到一位朋友。 这盘菜再次被我吃掉了。 while this sentence is not logical at a first glace, ...
