comment Determine radicals for simplifed characters that lost their traditional form completely
@Huang Thanks for your comment, and I guess you're probably right - I was puzzled by the fact that 叶 has no association with 葉 and tree leaves. I'll start a new question and you can answer it. I look forward to your explanation :)

@Alenanno no problem at all ;) I just love the beautiful intricacy of Traditional characters and I find it easier to learn simplified ones coming from a Traditional background.

May I make a suggestion here. While I find this is a good answer, I think it'd be helpful to those that are learning the language if you could provide English translation for any Chinese examples given in your answer.

@Alenanno Yes, I use Traditional characters (^_^) Feel free to drop me a line if you need any help with it.

Interesting, I've never come across the usage of 他媽媽的 in offensive/cursing manner. Having said that, if one says "他媽媽的洋裝", it'd be less likely to be taken as offensive when the words come out of your mouth.

comment Rules for saying numbers
Thanks, Alenanno. These are quite useful for writing but my question is for saying/reading out numbers. Say, if I bought something that costs 110 dollars in a market, the vendor usually says 一百一, rather than 一百一十. But then when it comes to 10,110, the reading becomes 一萬零一百一十?
