Written into a poem, actually. Close!

comment NY Times 翻译: He presented the choice in binary terms - 他用非此即彼的二元论来表述这个选择. Too complex?
非此即彼 is a philosophical term (in English it's called "Either/Or"). I think this translation is much too complex.

comment Use of 以 in 臣以弑君、可謂仁呼
I think you're pretty much there. I'd translate it in this context as something close to "in order to."

comment Questions on “的话”
My question is not about its usage or meaning, but rather about the origin. I know how to use it and do frequently, with and without 如果.

comment Questions on “的话”
I know the meaning and the usage. I just don't know why that's the meaning and usage. Take this example: 你想看的话.... It translates to "If you want to watch..." but literally is, what, "You-want-to-watch type of words"? My best guess for meaning is "(In regards to) the words/case of you wanting to watch..." Does that sound right?

comment How can I translate 不客气 here?
While that is true, this should probably be a comment and not an answer.
