comment How to pronounce 儿 in conjunction with other characters
It is normal to write the 儿, even for people who do not say them. Sometimes it is used to differentiate between a noun and a verb, as in the case of 花 vs. 花儿. In my experience, sometimes people in the south will switch the 儿 for a 子, for example "lens cap" is 镜头盖 but in the north will be shortened to "盖儿" and in the south "盖子"

comment How to parse 没得 + Verb constructions
Huh. Maybe, like one of the posters above said, this is used more in Cantonese and rarely used in Mandarin? Dunno. Not the 1st time I've had a native Chinese fail me when asking questions about their language :P

comment How to use 指 when giving a definition?
Maybe "is referring to" would be close in English with all of our weird tenses. I think this 是 is not essential to the sentence, but adds emphasis.
