comment Tips for pronunciating tone value “21”?
Standard Cantonese 陽去 is usually cited as 22, whilst it's 陽平 that is cited as 21. In general, 陽平 is consistently lower than 陽去, leading some to see 陽平 as 11.

comment Tips for pronunciating tone value “21”?
I'm not sure what you mean by "treating it like English": do you mean like a post-nuclear fall in English prosody (which would be like 3-1 or 5-1 usually)? Or just like a general English non-nuclear non-focus syllable (which wouldn't help, as in [most varieties of] English the pitch of this generally declines slowly)?

comment 美国意大利黑帮 - Expressing location without 在?
I would say that Italian-American is a compound noun in English, and it is this concept that is being translated into 美国意大利黑帮.

comment Does Cantonese or Mandarin contain the voiced or voiceless velar fricative?
Though /ɣ/ (the voiced velar fricative) is not really a phonemic initial in standard Mandarin, it is attested as one possible realisation of the null initial, especially after final nasals, e.g. 棉襖 mián'áo. Yuen Ren Chao even wrote a paper on this.
