comment Are there word games in Chinese?
I first learned about this game when reading Ba Jin's "The Family" (巴金《家》) en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Family_(Ba_Jin_novel). I've played a version of this game where we just used words instead of 成语.

comment Character and word frequencies
kFrequency isn't a very accurate frequency guage. For one thing, it only has about 5089 characters. Second, it only ranks characters on a scale of 1 to 5. Third, it's from usenet data... a bit old.

comment Difference between 佈 and 布
I wouldn't trust numbers by google.. especially on trad/simp issues like this. There are too many places where it could go wrong.

Jon's answer is pretty solid. I prefer to look at sentences instead of asking native speakers. vs. 学习
