comment correct pinyin and pronunciation for 太阳
@Stan "tai4 yang2" sounds normal to me, but "yue4 linag4" does not. So for 月亮, a neutral tone is a must. That's why 现代汉语词典 has the pronunciation like that.

And I think you cannot consider one use of "~~" formal just because a famous writer used it.

comment Meaning of “~~” at the end of a sentence
The use in the dictionary are only in dictionaries, and introduced in the introductions(凡例) in the dictionary. They are only used for easy reading and printing of the dictionary. So it should not be considered a "formal" use of the symbol, as the dictionary can choose any symbol for this purpose, as long as it give a detailed introduction to the symbols used. However, nearly all dictionary choose to use "~" now for this purpose.
