comment “I got the feeling that…”
@ming This is actually okay as colloquial English, like a contraction of 'I've got...' Also, about the article, 'a' or 'the' are both fine. Anyway it's perfectly clear what the OP is looking for.

comment What is the difference in pronunciation between saying “jin” and “jing”?
Is it similar to the variety of 晉語 in this video? I find it difficult to hear final nasals there, for instance with “今年天長不下雨” at around 0:45. Link: youtube.com/watch?v=tZbnSLFIqC4

comment Is it possible to use 最 in front of other part of speeches than attributes?
S.Rhee is correct - 最 can't modify a noun, and the example of this in the answer is mislabeled.

Sorry, that's 邶 (bei4) 風 , not 北風, as Wang has already mentioned.

On that page, the Mandarin translation is clearer than the English one - it's in the voice of a woman pining for an unfaithful or dissolute husband, I think.

The first one might be 日居月諸, from the 國風, 北風 section. See here: zwbk.org/MyLemmaShow.aspx?zh=zh-tw&lid=76511

comment What is the meaning of the sentence 字了一?
The linguist Wang Li’s name uses very simple characters: 王力. Interesting to learn that his style/courtesy name does too.
