comment When can I use 透?
Is the meaning close to the "... to the core" expression? For instance, rotten to the core, soaked to the core.

comment 吗 and 吧 at the end of a question
My understanding is 吧 can also be used when you expect the answer to be affirmative. For example, when confirming something 你6点下班吧? Similar to the tag question "You finish work at 6, right?"
