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?

comment What does the sound “app” mean in Chinese?
@OlleLinge Yes, the usual way to say it in English is "L-E-D display" (at least in American English AFAIK).

comment Is “biang” a phonologically possible syllable in Mandarin Chinese?
@user58955: Case in point, most English speakers have a lot of trouble pronouncing the Vietnamese surname, Nguyen, and the Cantonese pronunciation of the surnames 伍 (Ng5) and 吳 (Ng4). The former is often ends up being pronounced as "Win" and the latter is often Anglicized as "Eng".
