comment Saying “I have to go” in chat
@MdGao ah, thanks for clarifying, this makes sense now! I know the spoken word děi is 'to have', but didn't realise it shared the same character as de (得).

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!'
