comment Are there sentences where 跟 and 和 are interchangeable?
Tom, is there a side of the 跟 which is implicitly the 'following' side? I presume A跟B puts A as the 'follower' of B?

@pyko, han4 is the Taiwanese (Mandarin) reading of 和, he2 is the Mainland (Mandarin) reading.

comment When writing pin yin, should you use a question mark in sentences using “ma”?
Additionally, in modern written Chinese, even without pinyin, you still use question marks. In classical Chinese you will see un-punctuated works, but I'm not sure how uniform that is. A little more reading might be found here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinese_punctuation

comment Can someone verify the meaning and age of these ancient Chinese characters?
Short answer is "No". The meanings of these characters are being misconstrued in many cases. 魔 does not mean tempter. 广 does not mean cover. 口 does not mean breath.

comment Do 和 and 及 refer to two different kinds of “ands?”
If you are joining many things in a list of similar items, will you keep rotating the 'and' words, or can you repeat those? Is this right or wrong: 你跟他跟我一块儿来。?

You can also get to this by expanding the characters in the word dictionary it seems.

Stroke orders do differ even when characters are the same between regions: See 必http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stroke_order#Stroke_order_per_polity

comment What is the meaning of 真是的
I certainly know all the characters here, and mdgb gives me the translation I would expect for the three together like this. In the example context though, I really couldn't even guess at the meaning. I did a search on 你真是的! and found this thread: chinese-forums.com/index.php?/topic/… indicating that it's often used as an expression of annoyance like "You're really ... " with the end omitted.
