About me, huh? Well, I don't like creating a ton of different profiles because I never remember to update them all. So I'll defer this section to http://www.timparenti.com/me/.

So a sentence like 我的苹果是红色的 ("my apple is red") could be made into the plural case "my apples are red" by adding as in 我的苹果都是红色的? Is this correct usage for all or most nouns?

Thanks! This breaks things down quite nicely!

If can only be used for people, how then could one distinguish for other nouns where you say there is no such easy word? For example, 我的苹果是红色的 meaning "my apple is red" (singular) or "(all of) my apples are red" (plural)?

Great! Are there words used similarly to (within this context) to mean "some" or "a few", as opposed to "many"?

Awesome examples for the plural cases. I'm assuming that, for singular cases, 一个朋友 works, then? Or are there other ways to say this that are more grammatically similar to your plural examples?
