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.

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.

comment How to indicate plurality/singularity
@TimParenti besides "所有的“, you could still use "都","全" to indicate "all" of something(someone), as in my last example sentence.
