comment How do we know what characters correspond to Chinese names?
My bad, usually people ask. Like people asking if a person's name is spelled a certain way, most Chinese people ask is it is a certain character. E.g., Your surname is 'Li'? Is that 'Li' as in plum () or 'Li' as in reason () ?

Take a look at the methods and rules of simplification, they're fairly consistent: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…

comment How to describe differences between Cantonese and Mandarin?
@NullUserException What I mean by that was that both dialects can recognize the characters themselves, rather than the words they form. You recognize that an "a" is an the letter "a," but you might not know what "le caoutchouc" means.

comment Tense and use of 了
@Cocowalla In this context is indicating a change in time. It can also be used to indicate a change in the weather or in seasons. E.g., 春天了, 天气暖和了, 三点半了. In a similar context, can also be used to indicate a change of situation. E.g., 现在我不是老师了.
