Ordering Songs at Karaoke Intermediate

JoshFan When we doubled the verb, we wanted to soften the attitude. Try to compare 好吧,那买单。/ 好吧,那买单买单。The latter sounds more soft and calm, whereas the prior sounds a bit intense.  There are other examples, such as 你给我时间考虑考虑。这件事我想和你商量商量。

Always in Chinese: 总是 (zǒngshì) and 老是 (lǎoshi) Qing Wen

JoshFan I think 老是 can only used negatively, for example, 他出门的时候 老是/总是 忘记带钥匙。 You wouldn't hear someone says this, 他老是很体贴,看我工作一整天回家就帮我按摩。Here we should replace it with 总是.

巴西国博失火 Media

PeonyM 可以說,這兩個詞的意思十分相近,可以互相替換。 估量是評估,度量的意思;估計是評估,計算。所以在意思上他們是非常相近的,唯一的一個我能想到的區分,就是“估量”用在比較抽象的事物上面較多,而“估計”則更多用在具體的事物上。
