comment What is the difference between 省 and 省份?
I don't know for sure, that's why I only left a comment and it started with 'my feeling is'. I am also looking forward to a comprehensive answer.

comment What is the difference between 省 and 省份?
That's right, there is a large overlap in meaning and usage. The difference was referring to the non-overlapped part.

comment which do I use , 喜欢不喜欢 or 喜不喜欢?
Prosody is the 'sound and feel' of the sentence, like choosing between "A's B" and "B of A" in English in a context where they mean exactly the same thing.

comment which do I use , 喜欢不喜欢 or 喜不喜欢?
Both are grammatical and meanings are identical. I would say which one to use is a completely prosody thing.

comment What is the difference between 省 and 省份?
My feeling is that the difference is akin to 月 vs. 月份, or 'house' vs. 'household' in English - the former can be used to address a particular instance while the latter is usually used to express the concept itself, although for the particular pair (省 and 省份), the difference is of little significance and they are interchangeable in most cases.

comment What exactly does this 人单合一的自主经营体 mean?
单 is not short for 单位. After reading some references, 单 refers to 订单 but in a more generalized sense (baike.com/wiki/…), in which sense, abbreviating into single character is actually acceptable.

comment 着 vs 著? Is it the same
"Simplified Chinese users ... assume a 100% Simplified-Traditional correspondence between the two characters" This is not the case. On the contrary, as Bolu commented on the question, Simplified Chinese users think them as two distinctive characters and are never interchangeable with each other.

comment Conventional meaning of (你)耳朵生翅膀(了)
I don't think 耳朵生翅膀 is an idiom, but 生翅膀 is a metaphor for being absence (flew away).
