comment Is there a single word for “無用”
@Semaphore - If it's in Cantonese it would be 冇用 so it's definitely not Cantonese.

comment What does 起来 mean in this phrase?
Isn't 收起來 a combination of 收起+來? The meaning of 來 should be the same in both cases.

comment What does 起来 mean in this phrase?
Okay let's look at another example. If I say 他停下來了, I believe there's no way you can fit the translation "starting" in it. Same goes to 收起來.

I don't quite agree that it can be translated as "starting" in this case...

止 nowadays means "to stop", but historically it means "foot".

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?".

comment How to (hand) write Chinese character faster
@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.
