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.

江有渚,之子归,不我与!

寻寻觅觅,冷冷清清,凄凄惨惨戚戚。乍暖还寒时候,最难将息。

@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.

@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.

comment Use of Honorifics
I tried to answer, but I found it needed a lot of explanations to cover most cases.In general, you should use these terms to people that you are familiar, that you just meet, a stranger, and that is elder than you(but not so elder, difference<20, a rough measure). You use such words to show your respect, so don't use these words to people that you are familiar. There are many other cases besides What I said above.
