comment What is the difference between 探望 and 看?
探望 means that the person you are visiting is in a bad situation; 看 is more general. For instance, 'visiting a doctor' is always 看医生 and never 探望医生; 'visiting a patient in the hospital' is usually 探望病人.

comment pronunciation: j/q/x/y + ün
I would say it's closer to -een, the only difference being that ü is a rounded vowel. I am not really aware of the difference you mentioned between northerners and southerners, as a southerner I have never had difficulty understanding this particular sound of the northerners, so I have never paid much attention to it. Perhaps you can post some audio clips?

comment Where does the 4th tone go on wan3shang (evening)?
I don't see anything wrong with wan3shang4. It doesn't need to be neutral. This is just an accent issue.

comment What happened to the Old Chinese coda -p of 拉 in Cantonese?
I would speculate that it's similar to the case of 内 as well. In the case of 内, there were two pronunciations and one prevailed in the end. As to 拉, even in today's mandarin, you can see two pronunciations, la1 and la4. The la4 pronunciation reflected the Middle Chinese *lop, but somehow in Cantonese, this pronunciation lost to the other one.

comment Is there a Chinese word for liberation?
How was 普选 twisted? Well, that's just a different political perspective. From the CCP perspective, they liberated the serfs in Tibet.

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