comment Two “question words” in one sentence
As you can see from @congusbongus's examples, note that you can often tell that 什么 means "any/anything/whatever" when it is followed by 都 or 也 since X都 or X也 denotes "all of X".

comment How can I get a Cantonese keyboard on an iPhone?
@Crashalot This answer is unfortunately the best you're going to get. There is no built-in Cantonese keyboard currently, and Apple does not allow anyone to create their own keyboard; see: stackoverflow.com/a/6556672/582414

comment Headline: “YouTube创始人从雅虎手中收购Delicious”. What is the purpose of “手中”
@user58955 That seems like a perfectly fine answer. Why not add it as an answer instead of a comment so you can get the appropriate credit?

revised So technically, the correct usage of 得 for run very fast is 跑得很快 - why are there so many Baidu hits for 跑的很快 and 跑地很快?
