comment What is the verbatim meaning of the phrase 了不得了?
In Northern China 了不得 is not as common as 不得了 because of the great intensity, but I wouldn't call it 'rare'. Not sure about Southern China though.

comment What classifier imply a volume?
Measure/count words in Chinese are like preposition/conjunction words in English - there's a lot of them and usage is largely idiomatic.

comment Can I use a verb+的 construction to imply an item/noun?
Yes ~的 is like ~er in English which turns a verb into a noun, but just like in English, if the made-up word does not exist or already has a different meaning, it won't help understanding.

comment What's the correct classifier for `房子`?
@DrunkenMaster Maybe a Southern/Northern thing but some of the examples in the link don't sound natural either. On the other hand, now I see where 一套房间 makes perfect sense - in contexts like booking hotel suites.

comment What's the correct classifier for `房子`?
@DrunkenMaster 一套房间 sounds unnatural to me. It is common to say 我买了一套房子 (I bought a home), 他有三套房子 (he has three homes), etc.

comment What's the correct classifier for `房子`?
套 is referring to the logical aspect (a 'set' of rooms that function as one home) and is not necessarily a building, 一套房子 can be an apartment unit.

comment Is there a difference in meaning between 那年夏天 and 那个夏天
@MattChambers It is natural to say 咱们一起去海边的那(一)年, 北京奥运那(一)年, 咱们一起去海边的那(一)个夏天. The omission of 的 is idiomatic and prosodic, there isn't a simple rule. In the last sentence, 那(一)个 is grammatically required unless you're writing poems.
