comment Are there differences in writing between Chinese languages, such as Mandarin and Shanghainese
Very good explanation. I want to add this link to Wikipedia about the Wu language (Shanganese is part of this language): en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wu_Chinese Here they explain more differences with Mandarin Chinese (both about the grammar and the specific vocabulary (characters) they use).

comment How do I say “a loaf of bread”?
Yes you are right, 个 works. 个 normally always works, but often it's more authentic when more specific measure words are used.

comment Does qin1 cai4 translate to bok choy?
As theGoose mentioned, it depends on where in China you are. In many places 小白菜 really means bak choy and not baby bak choy.

comment Are 改正 and 纠正 interchangeable?
There are 2 aspects. "纠正"可以含有强制意味 means it has a stronger meaning. So for example for more serious problems or things that need to be fixed more urgently. But I agree, depending on the context 改正 might also be a good solution.
