comment What's the actual difference between 文 and 语?
I know. It's just that in this examples, I actually knew for a fact that 文 and the left part of 语 did actually have meaning and weren't phonetic.

comment Use of 龙 in the idiom 车水马龙
@fefe: this is off-topic, but I agree with you so much that I don't really think 龙 should be translated as Dragon, just Long because they are two different creatures.

comment What are the connotations of the word 拳拳?
If I should ever make business or work with Chinese people, I'll just use my real name. As you say it's just for fun, but still, if it sounds cute, girlie or for kids, it may not be such a good choice.

Good to know about the cuteness, I don't want my name to sound like a girl's :D I'll give the meaning I got, but I don't want to influence other's answers

comment How do we choose the correct characters for a westerner name?
@Huang: sorry for the off-topic, but can you name your children in China with any character you want? or are there certain characters allowed for names? (China, Taiwan or whatever place you know of)

comment How do we know what characters correspond to Chinese names?
Sorry for the off-topic, but in addition to Hanzi is Chinese (mandarin or other) used in Singapore?

comment What's the difference between 学 and 学习?
But that's why I made clear that this wasn't an answer but it could just give them a clue. This is what's Stack exchange is all about, users give their best answers and then, the best one will be selected. Besides, I'm telling here that I read it on a book, I can't remember the book but I didn't make this up, and anyway, this is not a PhD paper so having unconfirmed sources wouldn't hurt too much.

comment Searching for characters by parts
It's an interesting idea, I'll take a look at the decomposition. If there's nothing like this around, it would be an interesting project to develop.

comment What's the difference between 学 and 学习?
Was the -1 really necessary? can you at least correct me and give the right etymology? I read this in a book whose title I can't remember.

If I could mark two answers, this would be the other, thanks! @Bathrobe: maybe you want to add the example to your answer ;-)
