Hello, everyone! I am a native Chinese speaker. I love Chinese language and StackExchange website, that's why I came here. Hope I am able to help.

comment Is any simplified character also a traditional character?
@拳拳恳 The simplification does both good and bad to the language. Some traditional characters were merged into one character, and thus this simplified character has more meanings than it had before. In few cases, this multi-meaning character would make a sentence ambiguious(especially when you read classic chinese works with simplified characters, so good classic chinese works are published nowadays with traditional characters), but the writer/speaker can avoid it by using another character with the similar meaning or insert more characters to express the meaning explicitly.

comment Is any simplified character also a traditional character?
I say it is wrong, because you should write chinese either in simplified version or traditional version. Theoretically, a sentence with both traditional and simplified characters could be understood,but this behavior is prohibited by law in the mainland, and in HongKong and Taiwan, people don't understand simplified characters, so it's not a good idea to write with mixed characters,either.

@magnetar I am a little curious, just curious. Are you learning classic Chinese?

comment What does the classical construction X 何由 Y mean?
It is less common(but not rare), because a similar word 何以 will be used, I think. I could only come up with one example that is not from a poem, from 《孟子·梁惠王上》,"何由知吾可也"(how could you know I am capable?)

@Alenanno I edited my answer to answer your doubts. I found that my answers were usually too long. Does it matter? Or perhaps I should improve my English. Of course,you can edit it.

comment How did 舆论 come to represent Public Opinion?
@Bjorn Actually, I am not linguist and I know its origin because I have read that book. The character 舆 originally refers to che chasis of the wagon, and in Dynasty 周, the worker who makes wagons is called 舆人 according to the dictionary, however, I can't explain more that how 舆 became a name for class.

comment How did 舆论 come to represent Public Opinion?
@Bjorn, That section records history during the reign of the duke 昭 of state 鲁,which is 541 BC -510BC, so I think this system was in the Spring and Autumn Peroid of China.
