comment Confusion about bian 邊 and miàn 面
@Stan, based on my own experience, I have never heard anyone say 镜子前边. Neither have I heard of 书包里边. As such, I disagree that they are equal regardless of what is prescribed in 《现代汉语词典》. Although there are cases where the usage of 面 overlap with 边, we should learn to distinguish them for the sake of clarity.

comment What does 算你狠 mean?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about English. Chinese SE caters for people learning the Chinese Language. It is never a site for people to learn English.

comment Is 師奶 (see lai) strictly a Cantonese word? Is it a neutral word or does it have a negative connotation?
I know 師奶杀手 (auntie-killer) refers to a man who attracts older women with his boyish charm.

comment Zhuyin IME and tone 0/5 syllables
@hippietrail, it really depends on the IME you are using. Those that do not allow you to enter tones would need to have the predictive text ability turn on.

comment Is there a tone sandhi rule that “4 3” changes to “4 0”?
Changes of morphemes in Mandarin to the neutral tone are not examples of tone sandhi.

comment Zhuyin IME and tone 0/5 syllables
I believe most IMEs work like this, whether using pinyin or zhuyin. This is also how you would look up a word in the dictionary based on the pinyin or zhuyin of individual characters.

comment “A pair of mandarin oranges” as a homophone of “the gold”
It is due to the colour more than anything else.

忠義 is read from RTL and the story of the three brothers.
