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.

comment What do you think about this introduction to answering Yes/No questions?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is an open question about teaching Chinese.

comment Usage of 无 compared with 没有
@SamuelParsonage I don't think there is a definite rule but generally, for verb usage you should try 没有 because 无 as verb sounds ancient/classical; for adverb usage it depends on the word. Most adjective/adverb with 无 are 'dictionary words' as opposed to 'makeup words' (fixed phrase as you said but technically they are words not phrases), they are indeed learned one by one. When you're making up a phrase, both 没有 and 无 are fine to start with.
