comment Expressing the location: 哪里 or 哪儿?
@Huang what about 这儿 (zhèr) instead of 这里 (zhèlǐ)? Is that classified as erhua, or do the same rules apply? I once said it to a taxi driver in Xian, and he laughed and said something like 'zhèr! We're not in Beijing!'

comment How to say “hope you'll have a great day”?
I guess you're American, as I've only ever heard Americans use this phrase? It doesn't even sound 'right' in the UK in English, so can this be directly translated to Chinese?

comment Expressing the location: 哪里 or 哪儿?
I thought 哪儿 was just how people from Beijing said 哪里 (erhua or 儿化) - have I got that wrong?

comment Use of Honorifics
"This is normally out of respect to someone who maybe treats you as a younger brother or sister" so you wouldn't use 大姐 or 大哥 for people you don't know well?

Interesting, thanks. Is 谢啦 only used in Taiwan? (I haven't heard it on the mainland)

Rather than 我现在要走了,再见, would 我走了,再见 suffice instead?
