comment What does 土 mean in this sentence 这个名字有点土?
Just a side note. Mandarin pinyin has tones. If you are unable to type accented characters, then using numbers (tu3) is also an acceptable method.

comment Why are intermediate cardinal directions read differently in Chinese?
Without further research into the topic, I feel that the English directions are more phonetic than anything. Try saying eastsouth. Yep, I think so too.

comment What do you do when the dictionary doesn't give you a meaning that fits your sentence?
Regardless of the relevance of the sentence fragment, it actuallly doesn't appear to be grammatically correct...

comment Which marital verbs are used for same-sex marriages?
I agree with Stan here on the role each partner plays having an effect on the word being used. I would probably add 'political/financial position' to this as well.

comment What is the difference between 起码 and 至少?
最起碼 is not a legal term at all. It's used in common speech, not just in law.

comment When writing pin yin, should you use a question mark in sentences using “ma”?
That's non-standard pinyin by the way. Had to read that twice to understand. Tones are not optional.

comment Need to know how to type specific kanji found in image
@Stan Not exactly. Kanji were originally Chinese characters borrowed into Japanese, but were later mutated to adapt to their own writing style. New characters were invented in the process as well. So drawing equivalence between the Hanzi and Kanji is not recommended. (By the way, I was commenting on the OP's use of the word, not your comment, hence the lack of @).

comment Is '明天你都六点起床不起床?' a correct question?
The English question itself sounds very awkward. If you want to signal future intention, then use the present continuous tense: Are you planning/going to wake up at six tomorrow?, to which the answer would be YES. However, if you asked me: will you....? My answer would be I DON'T KNOW.
