comment Measure words for disrespect
I understand now. Although some measure words are typically paired with respectful nouns, the measure words themselves are only respectful by association and not because of inherent meaning.

@QuestionOverflow: Yeah, but the words can still be tinted. 个 and 位 can measure a person, but one of those measuring sticks is more respectful.

comment 他在工厂住了半年/living in factories
I thought it was weird because the Beijing Commercial Press published the book, and a lot of it involves hanging out with embassy staff drinking 茅台酒 (i.e., a different socioeconomic level entirely).

comment 一、 marker meaning? Ordinal number?
I've seen the title marks, but not those quotations marks in the textbook. Perhaps they're waiting until a more advanced one.
