comment Do you use 个 when describing distances/weights?
Good explanation, but the example sounds artificial - in real life scenario it would be phrased differently to avoid any possible ambiguity, e.g. 本文中公斤一词出现了几次.

comment Can you use 丰富 to describe a day?
@user3306356 充实 (meaningful) fits this sentence structure better but it doesn't have the same meaning as 丰富 (plentiful). To preserve that meaning I'd prefer 今天的*活动*很丰富.

comment What's the Mandarin equivalent of “定係”?
Using 还是 at the beginning of a sentence is colloquial/informal but not awkward, if by awkward you're referring to lack of language proficiency.

comment Third tone sandhi: when (if ever) does 3 3 become 3 0 instead of 2 3?
@Claw That answer explains the phenomenon very well, but I don't think the question is a dupe.

comment When will we use 来 and 到 after a verb?
@Ming Not exact dupe. The first example 我回来了 is the classic 'come/go' question. The second example is close but the linked answer did not cover '来' as a resultative complement.

comment Is there a comprehensive list of separable verbs/离合动词 anywhere?
I think this is a valid question if you're looking to programmatically processing for the language, however, if you're learning the language yourself, you should take @孤影萍踪's advice.

comment Dialects/Topolects: Tone Marks?
@user3306356 I think that name is inherited from ancient time when the tonal system is more akin to today's Cantonese. I am certain that in modern Mandarin, the absolute pitch for individual characters is mainly determined by the tone of the sentence, which is very different from Cantonese.
