comment What does “&” (Ampersand) means in Chinese language?
Nor have I ever heard about it. '&' is even not a chinese literal. The same suggestion as above, a photo could be provided and we'll see if it might be some sign else.

comment Why is the 車 in Chinese chess pronounced jū?
@congusbongus. The earliest chess game is not very much alike the modern chess game, but some of the concepts were inherited, like its name, some of the schema, etc.

comment Why is the 車 in Chinese chess pronounced jū?
@congusbongus, AFAIK, Chinese chess dates back to 475~221 BC, much earlier than Indian chess game. Also, "車" is called "ju" at that time. You can read the article here and here

comment Usage of word 到 in 我很高兴见到你
In English, see/meet can represent both “见” and “见到", but I would remind you of another example, “听” is "listen to" while “听到” is "hear". That's similar difference.

comment Why is 我很要… an invalid statment
我觉得这种属于固定搭配,就像英语中也有固定搭配一样。“很”搭配的单词中就是没有“要”。毕竟是自然语言,不是所有的都能用逻辑去解释的,就算能解释,也不过是多一种特‌​例而已,未必有很大的意义。我觉得很多英语中的短语搭配也无法解释。

comment “以来” - Chinese dictionary says noun. “Since” in English dictionary says preposition, conjunction. Distinction?
@Claw, finally, I found you are right for the point that it is not a noun. It is a part of 'Circumpositions (框式结构)' in Chinese. See “连动介式"介词框架

comment is 趁早 the same as saying as soon as possible? Can I use it by itself?
They are different. ASAP means "尽早", "趁早" means "to catch the tide".

comment Is there a Chinese equivalent of the German “Mut zur Lücke”?
Well, "赌运气" is used when someone has a strong hope that the part of knowledge will not appear in the exam. It is more of "hope" than "acceptance of the risk". "Mut zur Lücke", as I guess, is explained as "not care too much of the risk"
