comment Why do Chinese translations of English names sound very inaccurate?
"because Japanese doesn't have "r" but "l"" I'd say the opposite... Chinese has the L while Japanese has R.

comment Regional pronunciations of standard Mandarin
Aristide, list questions are usually not fit for Q&A sites. Sometimes short lists are ok or with strict requirements. But in your case, it seems it's much broader.

comment Why 『衛護』's 『護』 is 言部?
@Mike You can ask your question in Chinese. What we ask is, if you want to do the best, to provide an english translation. It's not mandatory, but it would be greatly appreciated. You could do something like this, but also translating the title in your question separated by /. There is no need you write "english version" or "chinese version": it will be clear by itself. :D

comment What's an appropriate conversational response to 这是什么?
That is an explanation you could have added to your answer. Please do it. When you're answering, one-liners are not that helpful. Always try to expand adding explanations, comparisons, anything that will help increase the quality of your answer.

comment What's an appropriate conversational response to 这是什么?
That's irrelevant, explain why it's the most natural way, add detail and context. As is your answer is rather poor.

comment Difference between 是不是喝酒了? and 喝酒了没有?
Are those pair of expressions the same? If not, I'd suggest a different question (it's allowed and actually it's better).

comment How were Chinese characters taught to Chinese children before the introduction of pinyin?
Apart from the factual wrong information you're giving, can you expand on your answer? For the record, Pinyin and IPA are not the same thing. The former is a romanization system (like Romaji for Japanese), while the latter is the International Phonetic Alphabet. One transliterates into Latin letters, the other one trascribes sounds.

comment What effective methods exist for visual learners to get Chinese grammar?
You're asking about both grammar and characters... That's quite broad. I suggest you only ask about grammar, because there is already a question about characters. Also another related question.
