comment Does 上嗨 work as a pun for 上海?
2. It uses pronunciation in Mandarin as a notation for Shanghainese. It is not precise and non-standard. Shanghainese does not have its own writing system (as far as I knows). 3. 学嗨吾吖 for 学海无涯 is more like a writing style on the internet called "火星文" (language of the Mars). It uses characters with similar writing or pronunciation instead of the original. It is quite hard to understand sometimes. This is a little different from the latter example you gave.

@BertR Not everybody. Only the ones that often surf on the web. This is some kind of net slang, and only a few of such expressions can find their ways into everyday life. People who are not familiar with this kind of slang will have a hard time guessing what they are.

Notice that the weather report is from Taiwan, where different expression maybe used from Beijing. I'm not familiar with expressions used in Taiwan, but I doubt it should mean the temperature "lowered by" 10 degrees instead of "lowered to" 10 degrees. As for the report about oil price, I still fill it wired. "下探" can be used for prices for oil, stock market, etc, but usually without a number.

@Claw I have no problem with "零摄氏度". In fact I always place the number before "摄氏".

Usually, it is just read as "度". The full name is "摄氏度". "°F" is read as "华氏度".

comment How are Latin botanical names handled in Chinese?
I'm just saying that the Chinese names may not be the one used by botanists, but only used in Chinese medicine. Sometimes the names do not refer to a specie, but only a part of a plant. However, as I'm not very familiar with either subject, I cannot be quite sure.

comment Why 又 is used there instead of 再?
Now that you mentioned it, I think it can be treated as adding emphasis.

I don't think this has anything to do with "also".
