comment What is the difference between 起码 and 至少?
I too have no statistical evidence but I would say 起码 is not a formal word to use for news broadcast or official documents, at least in mainland China.

comment Can someone verify the meaning and age of these ancient Chinese characters?
+1 for getting to the bottom. It is annoying to see false facts used as supportive materials.

comment Do 和 and 及 refer to two different kinds of “ands?”
@juckele Just to point out, the second 跟 (in 跟我一块来) is special when used before an action verb like 来, because it's ambiguous between the verb 'to follow' vs. the conjunction 'succeeding; and', i.e. physical vs. logical. So your sentence can be interpreted as either 'You and he and I, let's go together' or 'You and he, follow me'.

comment Differentiate 不错 and 没错 in these situations
@Stan At a second thought I think you're right, it's not common and sound natural only in specific circumstances. I have updated the answer. For a concrete example, think of a 相声-like conversation: “我回家了”“是”“我一打开门”“没错”“我一看”“看见什么了?”…… Having used this type of conversation with my friends in Beijing from time to time, it may be my false assumption that it sounds natural to all Mandarin speakers.
