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.

寻寻觅觅,冷冷清清,凄凄惨惨戚戚。乍暖还寒时候,最难将息。

comment What does “整块的时间” mean?
This sentence sounds a little strange. Could you give me more context of this sentence, to help me understand it more?

@trideceth12 Based on my own knowledge, I don't konw 溝鼠 and I don't know the simplified version 沟鼠 either. Actually,it's the first time I see it.

Just a reminder, 袋鼠 the kangaroo really doesn't belong to Muridae.

comment How does one distinguish between homographs in Chinese?
No worries. Every learner makes mistakes. It's difficult for me to create a sentence with this word, which can confuse people, because the meaning are so different.

comment Syntax of 'Number Number MeasureWord'
@jogloran 十八九个 sounds good, while 十九二十个 sounds a little strange, but I think I will understand it in the similar sense of "十八九个". You maysay "二十个左右" or "大约二十" or even "十九或二十个" to express that meaning.

comment Syntax of 'Number Number MeasureWord'
@jogloran In general, the pattern is [numberA][numberA+1][measure word], so 十五七公里 is wrong, however, there are very few exceptions like 百八十. Such exceptions are fixed, so you can't say 八十百 or 百九十. Also, in classic Chinese poems, the order of the numbers may invert to meet the format of poems. I.e,竹外桃花三两枝.(by famous poet/writer/politician 苏轼)

comment What characters are on this ceramic jar?
Claw's answer is good. He is not sure that the last character is "寧(simplified:宁)", and I also doubt it. That character seems like “樂(simplified:乐)” to me, which means "happy,delightful". Look at the bottom part of that tree, it looks like "木", right?
