comment Old Mandarin vs. Mandarin Chinese?
I don't think Old Mandarin and modern Mandarin Chinese are intelligible as the differences in grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation are huge, in some aspects even greater than between modern Mandarin Chinese and Japanese. I believe, however, one can master the two at the same time, but that's just like speaking two languages, not because the two languages are mutually intelligible.

Hmmm that sounds certainly like Lord Varys...

comment Am I so predictable?
@TommieC. You can say something as simple as '没错', '你猜对了'. I am still not sure what you want to express though - just a positive acknowledgement or do you want to lead the conversation into something?

comment 家: why is a home a place for pigs?
Wild guess: bulls are raging, hence 'housing a bull' implies imprisonment; pigs are growing fast, hence 'housing a pig' implies nurturing.
