comment How do current Mandarin speakers usually pronounce 阿Q正传?
Completely anecdotal, some of my friends from North-eastern China read QQ as 'koukou', while I have never heard any Southerner pronounce it that way.

comment What is the difference between 绿 and 青?
@Rephinx I don't think there is any disagreement among us on what 青 really means. The core of the argument is when the context is not explicitly stated in the question, as it was not, whether a simple response that describes the common, modern or even 以讹传讹 but widely adopted usage of the word considered an acceptable answer. To me it should be, especially when compared to some other obviously low-quality yet upvoted and accepted answers on this website. I would rather put my effort into improving those answers.

comment What is the difference between 绿 and 青?
@Rephinx As a native speaker, '青', when not put in any context, means 'cyan' to me. IMO the Baidu article is incomplete but not incorrect.

comment Why is (是) shi4 dropped in this sentence:“我很好”?
@Claw Agreed. Not a real dupe in question but there are major overlap in the supposed answers. I voted for closing for condensation but maybe I shouldn't.

comment Chinese equivalent of “I'm stealing that joke”
It's not the idea of stealing that doesn't fit into Chinese conversation, instead, making such statement is. If the intent is to applaud the joke or the joke teller, there are many other ways.
