+1 for the forgery caveat. I guess authentic ones wouldn't need to bear such a claim.

comment Is 其他人 any different from 别的人?
Although both mean other people, 别的人 can be used to point out a specific group or person, such as a special someone in a love affair. 其他人 can only mean other people in general.

comment DATE/PERIOD expression 2010年10-12 means year 2010 from October to December, or year 2010 October 12th?
It can mean anything since it isn't written in a proper format that people would understand. Unless more context is provided, I am voting to close this as primarily opinion based.

comment Usage of 一定 vs 当然
The whole sentence sounds unnatural. A better way to phrase it would be "我学汉语学了10年,水平 _ _ 高".

comment Alternative name for moon cakes?
I think it could be derived from Hokkien too as 饼 means piah in Hokkien. Example popiah or 薄饼.

comment Meaning of 之下 in this sentence
This looks more like a partial quote of a sentence instead of a poor sentence structure.

comment “一别五六年” 是什么意思??
No, my answer in Meta is not the site's policy. The moderator is trying to set the direction by asking for input from the community. That's where this confusion and inconsistency comes about.

Anything wrong with making Chinese female friends?

comment Names of extended family members
Voting to close as it is not clear what you are asking. If you understand Hokkien, then translating it to Mandarin should be a piece of cake. Example "tua" is 大, "bay" means last, etc.

comment Why do people often say 最多 in Cantonese when they mean “at the very least”?
I totally disagree with this answer. When someone say "最多,我请你吃饭" to me for doing him a favour, I would take it that the person would really treat me to a meal, not anything lesser.

Not just Cantonese. This is applicable to Mandarin too.

comment What does 算你狠 mean?
@hippietrail, I disagree. From the question, OP already knows what it means and is seeking for the "best wording". If she really wants, she can always post in EL&U asking how to express "you win", but with the emotion "you only win because you over-do it brutally". In Chinese with have this expression 算你狠... CL&U users shouldn't be inundated with English word/phrase/slang requests from users whose only purpose is to improve their English vocabulary.

comment Difference between 坏 and 破
What I am trying to say is that there is no one-one mapping for languages. Neither is 破 used on a broken phone unless it is literally broken (into pieces).

comment Difference between 坏 and 破
It means the tv is spoilt (broke down). 腿坏了 doesn't mean a broken leg (腿断了 does).

comment Difference between 坏 and 破
I don't know where you get the translated meanings. But try understand the meanings using a Chinese dictionary and use the English one only as a reference. means bad or spoilt, not broken. But in English, anything that is broken is spoilt.
