Mostly not. But 美姐 sounds a little strange.

俏食 means eating in a restaurant without paying in some dialects. Same as 霸王餐.

comment Difference between 特色, 特點, 特性, 特質, and 特徵
@QuestionOverflow 's answer summerized great. But remember, I think the difference is exaggerated in order to give such an answer. The only and hard way to know them perfectly is to read more.

comment Difference between 特色, 特點, 特性, 特質, and 特徵
It's complicated and subtle... I can't say I can explain it clearly, though I know how to use them. 特质 is some abstract concepts, attributes, or something internal. This is the most different one. For others, they can be interchanged in various places. But the differences are really complicated. Sometimes they can be translated as a same word, but in Chinese, they imply something more.

comment How can I interpret 多 in this sentence?
I'm not sure if more than 3 or just over 3 imply less than 4 as the Chinese means.

comment Difference between 佈 and 布
This is just another big bug in simplifying characters. Like and , and etc. The simplification should not combine two chars of two meanings into one. So pity it is.

That comment is for other people seeing this answer. Your translation is wonderful in some situation, but not all.

Notice that 晓得 is used commonly in south CN, while in the north, 知道 is more popular.
