My Chinese has deteriorated quite a bit over the years. Trying to ressucitate it. I speak a few other languages with varying degrees of fluency.

Yay, lucky number!

comment How to describe differences between Cantonese and Mandarin?
Really? Korean words are constructed from syllables and have no tones. I don't think it looks sounds anything like Cantonese.

I don't think the writing system analogy is a good one. I don't understand French even though I am a native Portuguese speaker, but someone who speaks Cantonese can understand Standard written Chinese.

comment Techniques for improving pronunciation
"or remembering the difference between zuo and zuo" Could you add the Chinese characters to clarify? (I am guessing 作 and 做, but I don't know)

comment Is it easier to learn Chinese after learning Japanese or vice versa?
I have been told one can get around in Japan if they can write in Traditional Chinese.

Merriam-Webster, eh? The OED is arguably the most respectable English dictionary out there. Because you know, it was written by the English.
