comment Is the measure word optional in 这件毛衣?
is a Unit/classifier/量詞. Sometimes it is optional, sometimes not. I have a small section about that in my other answer here.

comment How did 黃 (yellow) come to mean “pornographic”?
I know 黃色電影, 黃色書刊/黃書 is a common usage in Hong Kong. However I am not sure if the usage is originated from HK or elsewhere.

comment What is that use of 得?
Seems difficult to find example that match '记得'. What about '食得' in '食得下'? Actually, when we answer this question, should we focus on '记得' or the broader form/combination of 'X得'?

@StumpyJoePete I just want to confirm 用得 can be used in written Chinese or Mandarin. I am trying to avoid Cantonese specific example in my answer.

@BertR Those are not "translation", but kind of a "understand as such". I am not trying to give grammatical explanation in the answer.

@BertR @NSX Regarding 用得, Does "他这招二龙抢珠用得真好" sound normal or strange to you? If you think is strange, then I will remove 用得 from the list.

@NSX I do not mean to deconstruct the words or terms. They are suppose to be used/understand as a whole. That's why I keep use the words feel, sense in my answer.
