Thanks for your answer! Wow, the mix-ups are a lot more pervasive than I imagined. I doubt I'll understand Cantonese people speak Mandarin :(

comment “Four-part” composition of characters
Nice! The only one I've seen is 4 dragons. Yeah, I might have asked a bad question, because it really depends on how many characters a person knows. I've asked language teachers and they had no suggestions. So I came to the pros here in Stack Exchange :)

comment “Four-part” composition of characters
This is really off-topic and off-language, but I have to mention the absurdity of マ being derived from = when 疑 clearly contains it.

comment Is there a tone sandhi for 2nd-tone-2nd-tone names?
Thanks for the detailed response. I'm surprised the T2 to T1 sandhi exists. I was thinking about Tiantian and the tone change could reflect endearment too. I should have asked while I was there :( Off topic, but I really like Chao's Gwoyeu Romatzyh. I think it's a shame it never caught on. Too advanced, maybe?
