comment Could you repeat that?
You could say '没听清, 能再说一遍吗?' (literal translation: didn't hear it clearly, could you say it again?)

comment Are there standard dictionaries for Chinese?
@Bathrobe 现代汉语词典 is sort of authoritative. To me, 溏鹅 isn't a proper Chinese word -- I have never seen it before -- pelican is called 鹈鹕 in Chinese.

comment 减/減 (Reduce/Subtract/Decrease/Diminish): What's it got to do with water?
The origin of the word is the name of a river. Quote from 山海经: 減水出焉北流注于海其中多鱤魚. The meaning of 'reduction' is somehow derived from that but I have no idea why... It may be related to some natural attribute of the river.

Oh they just want to sound fancy, the same for filet as well... Some restaurants even follow the Cantonese word 士多啤梨 for 草莓...

comment When do I use V for Ü in Pinyin programs
Only when there's ambiguity. For instance, lu is a valid pinyin so lü becomes lv in the IME.
