comment What is the grammar of “用餐曅請隨手整理桌面 座位有限請勿休憩估用”?
Just on the typo 曅. 曅 = archaic form of 晔/曄, which means 'bright'. Its uses nowadays are usually found in literature or in people's names, such as 范晔 - zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/…

comment Differences between 征, 伐, 讨, 侵, 袭?
You will need to ask in compounds that they are used in. They are usually used by themselves, so it's a bit hard to explain the nuances.

comment How to address a teacher one knows well (in conversation and emails). Is 亲爱 “dear” ever appropriate?
I don't know. 亲爱的 to me is a lot more common in writing when addressing a teacher or a professor.

"But they don't mean the same." How do they differ? This answer would be a lot more helpful if you could provide some insight into their differences.
