For the avoidance of doubt, there is no such thing as 'Simplified Chinese'. There is the Chinese language and there are mistakes.

comment What are the connotations of the word 拳拳?
I do not agree with the point names of repeating characters are for girls. How about famous names like 薄瓜瓜 and 李禾禾? By the way, I believe 拳拳 is a very good name for guys.

comment Why can't 了 be used to complement 到?
@xiaohouzi79 You should say 他什么时候到的悉尼 instead. In other words, replace 了 with 的.

comment Why can't 了 be used to complement 到?
@xiaohouzi79 I guess it has to do with 刚,which in this case means just (arrived). On the other hand, 了 indicates have arrived (complete tense). So I believe you are right, 刚 makes it unnatural. By the way, 他什么时候到了? sounds unnatural to my ears.

comment Using 一样 instead of 同一 for “the same school”
@xiaohouzi79 Good point, however, I believe the meaning of this sentence is ambiguous. We may prefer to use 同一 to clear the potential ambiguity.
