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.)

I disagree: the DR is 多米尼加, Dominica is 多米尼克.

comment Does the use of 就 and 便 vary by region?
@trideceth12 I don't have citations at hand, but it's pretty common in Chinese short stories and novels.

comment Is 解决 a common euphemism for going to the bathroom?
Thank you for your answer, but I think you have misunderstood my question. I understand both the literal and euphemistic meaning of 解决; my question was whether this usage is common.
