comment What are the most common mistakes when pronouncing Pinyin?
This question is too subjective unless a proper source is provided. Personally I don't mistakenly pronounce "shuo" but often confuse "cu" and "shu", but that's just me, and it's irrelevant to a Q&A website.

comment 的-地-得, when do you use which?
A grammar book I read recently suggests that it's not so important which is which and that you can use 的 in all the cases (maybe not in an important exam but in everyday use). That was confirmed by a Chinese friend who told me to use 的 where it should have been 得. To be confirmed though, but check out recent grammar books.

comment Did phonological systems (namely bopomofo) standardize Chinese phonemes?
In fact, the earlier system seems to be the fanqie (300 AD), which was used to indicate the pronunciation of Chinese characters (see en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fanqie ). This is an interesting question though - can a romanization system influence how the language is pronounced? In theory, it shouldn't, in practice, that seems possible (since pupils learn with it).
