Chinese student/enthusiast since 2005. I welcome ALL comments and corrections on my Chinese -- I'm always looking for new ways to learn!

comment What is the difference between 秀才, 进士, 举人, and 甲第?
@coolcfan either way. The convention on other language SEs is to answer in the language of the original question. I'd say the assumption should be that questions asked in both languages can be answered in either.

comment What is the difference between 秀才, 进士, 举人, and 甲第?
(Posting the question in Chinese is an experiment to attract Chinese visitors who'd prefer to read and respond to questions in their native language. We'll see how it goes.)

It's not mandatory, but it helps to identify useful content for other users!

comment What is the function of 的多 in this sentence?
Another important detail: stative verbs without adverbial modifiers often imply comparison. Depending on context, 中国人爱喝茶的多 may have the sense "Among Chinese people, there are more who like to drink tea [than there are people of another type]." For example, "中国人爱喝茶的多,爱喝咖啡的少。"

I notice you have a 0% accept rate; consider marking a best answer here (and on other questions) when you're satisfied with a response.

comment How would I say Dominican Republic in Chinese?
Of course, as I said in my answer, 多米尼加联邦 was an old name for Dominica, so it may be the case that older documents use the shorter name 多米尼加 to refer to that country. But today, the usage of 多米尼克 for Dominica seems standardized. (See my answer for more details.)

comment How would I say Dominican Republic in Chinese?
I certainly could be wrong, but I don't think I am. All of the Chinese-language sources I link to in my answer use 多米尼加 to refer exclusively to the Dominican Republic. Conversely, all the websites I found referring to Dominica use 多米尼克. These are also linked in my answer below. I don't know what YouDao is, but CEDICT is a collaborative effort and is not always reliable. (We've had a question on this site before about errors in its entries.)
