comment How do you emphasize unformatted Chinese text?
@OlleLinge What I am sure is it's not a mainland-only thing as it was originated in the ancient times, see this reference and I've seen them used in photo print of these books myself. But I don't know if in Taiwan it's not common or even obsoleted.

comment Difference between 好累 and 很累
Worth noting 好累 (and 好想, 好喜欢, etc.) are idioms originated in southern China. They are becoming more and more common in northern China by the influence of internet, books and Hongkong television, but not yet accepted by everyone.

comment Informal ways of beginning/ending an e-mail
No, 亲爱的 can be used widely, almost anywhere that "dear" is appropriate in an English letter. Even in business letters you'll see as many 亲爱的 as 尊敬的. In letter to elder person (e.g. teacher), 亲爱的 can be used and implies a closer relationship than 敬爱的. In letter to a friend, 亲爱的 is extremely common, regardless of gender.
