comment How to pronounce 儿 in conjunction with other characters
My textbook (Integrated Chinese) also prints 儿 on words when the 儿 is simply accent. Is it normal to write 空儿,玩儿,聊天儿 etc? Or is the 儿 normally omitted?

comment How to distinguish between rat and mouse in Chinese?
Well I guess I'll just have to make a conversation point out of specifying exactly which type of 鼠 I am talking about. @Huang, would the average Chinese native speaker understand 溝鼠? That's the species of rat that is common as a house pet in Western countries.
