comment what is the ancient Chinese 1 character name for woman like '子’ means men?
I also want to point that the difference between 汝(less formal) and 子(more formal) is formality, not gender

comment What does 非也 mean?
A modal refers to an expression of "mood" which is usually something subjective, so I don't think 也 should be called a modal. www-01.sil.org/linguistics/GlossaryOfLinguisticTerms/… The grammar of the phrase is from classical/old Chinese and is similar to how English speakers say "carpe diem" without having any clue of Latin grammar.

If you really want to learn both traditional and simplified, I think it's better to start with traditional first.

comment Use of 以 in 臣以弑君、可謂仁呼
I see, it's like 以之 with the 之 omitted. That sentence is just a made up sentence from my book meant to explain the usage in a simple way. Stuff like 以為 and 以上 finally make sense!

comment Strategies to discourage uptalk in Chinese language learners?
This is a random anecdotal aside but when I hear native Chinese speakers being uncertain (of a pronunciation or something) instead of uptalking they mumble it reeeeeally softly.

comment Origin of 乎 as a bound morpheme in words such as 热乎
Some of those might be rare but I can find entries for most of them on zdic.net. 热乎 at the very least seems to be a fairly common term in spoken Mandarin.
