I'm a student majoring in Languages (branch: Linguistics), currently working as a freelance translator. I've recently discovered Dropbox and I'm going to use it for my needs! :)

I love
Languages, Movies (Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Tarantino, etc.), Music, 3D Graphics, books and so on.

Appointed ♦ Moderator Pro Tempore on Linguistics SE, Chinese SE and the Russian SE site. If you're interested in other Stack Exchanges, try the Italian SE site.

I like to lurk on other sites' Metas. Meta is fun!

My feature requests:

  1. Alert a moderator when an answer is improved after a post notice
  2. Automatically add chat event to the community bulletin (or make it easier)
  3. Give 10k users the ability to see the total count of flags they've handled

Moderator issues: If you have concerns or want to contact me about my moderation, you can find/ping me either in the Linguistics SE chat room or CL&U chat room; if I'm not there or I'm "idle", just ping me! Please avoid using my personal email for such things. Use the chat rooms.

You pretty much answer my question but there is something I don't see... Which is: are there rules or guidelines or a rule of thumb to know WHEN I can use 是 too?

comment Sentence structure “I'm [doing something] because [reason]”?
I added the pinyin, but I'm not 100% sure it's correct. I used the dictionary so hopefully it is... :)

Don't worry. I think you should edit your answer, sometimes they get down-voted when they don't answer the question. :)

comment How do we know what characters correspond to Chinese names?
I'm not asking how to locate a name in a speech, but rather how to translate a name written in pinyin, considering we don't know the character.
