comment Does 妇人 mean wife or simply woman?
Right, and some of Shen Congwen's stories are set among the Miao people of Hunan, where he was from. I remember reading one about a hunter who abused his wife - women's rights were one of his themes if I'm not mistaken.

comment Can I use "我知道“ to say I know some kind of food?
Yes, it's normal spoken Chinese. Leaving those words out strikes me as an over-simplified, pigeon-like way of speaking. It might be that people like food sellers do this when they aren't used to speaking to foreigners.

我會吃辣的 = 'I can eat spicy food.' Also using 過 as in 'I've eaten this before'.
