comment Radical meaning vs characters in use
The "Chinese" are no more lying to you than the English are when searching for "ham" will give you results for pork instead of "farm, homestead". Language evolves, and in this case, the character is archaic and mostly survives in place names and by lending its meaning as a radical.

comment What does 反动 mean?
That's only a small part of its usage; CCP are frequently describing the previous KMT and Qing governments as 反动 as well.

comment 家: why is a home a place for pigs?
@GeorgeChen that seems like a different source, and isn't a primary source, it has two contradictory explanations: first it says that it stands for wild boars offered as sacrifices, second it says it means domestic pigs kept inside the house.

Interesting, although this seems to be different from the explanation in 说文解字. What is your source?

comment How to use 整 as in exactly
@user58955 I disagree, to me 三百八 unambiguously means 380. I've never encountered a situation where it means 308.

comment If Confucius came back to life today and scribbled a message, could most modern Chinese people understand it?
@KennyLJ yes, as those would be simple instructions. In fact I wager people who have not studied 文言文 in great depth would also understand such texts.

comment 快: why does “fast” also mean “happy”?
I am aware that it has different meanings, and one can tell from the context. I also know that many Chinese characters have multiple meanings. I am asking why this character has these two unrelated meanings. Please see this question for an example of what I'm asking.

comment 快: why does “fast” also mean “happy”?
I don't think that's correct; my understanding is that it means "happy" alone, e.g. 心不快。——《史记·魏公子列传》, 快,喜也。——《说文》

comment What is the meaning of ㄝ?
@Graviton it is not a word, it is a symbol in the Zhuyin Fuhao system, used to indicate pronunciation. It is rarely seen outside dictionaries, IMEs or primary textbooks.

comment Is there a Chinese word for liberation?
I think using 自由 for liberation is more to do with the link to "liberty", which is often translated as 自由.

This is not a Chinese language question. Shame we don't have a Chinese culture Q&A site :(
