comment Written Cantonese Pronunciation
@nfc - Actually you can say they are sort of two completely different languages. The written form is based on Mandarin and Cantonese is based on ancient Chinese.

comment For which senses of simplified 制 would I use the traditional form 製?
Historically they were the same character Is this true? Since they both mean completely different things even in ancient times. (I don't know)

comment Is there a literal meaning of 对不起?
Note that this is only true in Mandarin. (北京官話, or more commonly known as 普通話) In other branches of Chinese, for example, Cantonese, it's 「對唔住」. However, you cannot say 「住唔住」 in Cantonese because it means something else than "can't afford to live in", instead, it means "to live in or not?".

@CongXu - What I meant is the Simplified Chinese system... not those tricks I mentioned.

comment How to (hand) write Chinese character faster
@CongXu - Simplified characters often create confusion, for example, can you tell what does means? It also creates misleading characters such as 游戏. means to swim (nothing else), but now it seems like you are playing games while swimming.

comment When to use 家 vs 师 vs 员 vs 者
I think memorization is the key in Chinese. Also if doesn't sound right to you, then probably there is something wrong.

comment Is the measure word optional in 这件毛衣?
@BAK - is just like in English, where you say a glass of water, a loaf of bread. You can not just say I want a water or I ate a bread, right? Same in Chinese. Sometimes you need 件/個/條, but sometimes you don't.

Those square boxes papers are the paper we use in schools to write essays, very essential stuff. (At least in Hong Kong)

@StumpyJoePete 亻尔真系吾可厶人手丁廣東言舌出嚟。 You can write things in Cantonese, but there is no standard way of writing it.
