comment What is the word in majiang equivalent to suits in cards?
@倪阔乐 Of course I know 清一色, but that's not what the OP was asking. The question is about the name of the concept/measure word for 饼、条、万. I'll update the answer to clarify.

comment What is the grammatical analysis of 信得过?
買得过 and 嫁得过 are definitely ungrammatical and unheard of in Northern China. Can someone from Southern China confirm the usage?

comment What are some profanity words in classical Chinese?
Are you looking for sex-related words like coitus in classical Chinese, or profanity/taboo words (some of which are not about sex at all), or swearing words?

comment Old Mandarin vs. Mandarin Chinese?
I don't think Old Mandarin and modern Mandarin Chinese are intelligible as the differences in grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation are huge, in some aspects even greater than between modern Mandarin Chinese and Japanese. I believe, however, one can master the two at the same time, but that's just like speaking two languages, not because the two languages are mutually intelligible.

Hmmm that sounds certainly like Lord Varys...

comment Am I so predictable?
@TommieC. You can say something as simple as '没错', '你猜对了'. I am still not sure what you want to express though - just a positive acknowledgement or do you want to lead the conversation into something?
