Question:

How many tone are there in Mandarin why is it important to differentiate them?

Annie X.
Answer:

There are a total of four tones in Mandarin (more tones in Cantonese) The same sound, when ascribed different intonations, can be transcribed into different characters. Differentiating tones can therefore be crucial to avoid confusion. For example, both 发 and 法 can be notated as FA in the Pinyin system, yet the first one registers as a fourth tone and the second one registers as a third tone. The first one means "hair" while the second one "law."

Annie X.
Answer:

The Japanese language has three writing systems: katakana, hiragana and kanji. Even though Kanji (漢字) seems to have borrowed elements from the Chinese language, Japanese employs the unique SOV system that differentiates itself greatly from the SVO system found in Mandarin.

Question:

What is a psychological disorder? How do we define psychological disorders?

Annie X.
Answer:

A psychological disorder is a relatively consistent condition expressed in forms of disturbance in cognition, emotional regulation and/or behavior. It is most likely inappropriate and harmful to an individual’s personal and social life in a given social and/or cultural context. The definition of a psychological disorder shall aim to be both exclusive and inclusive. It is inclusive in that it should apply to a variety of clinical conditions. At the same time, it should also be exclusive such that it differentiates conditions that are distressing and disabling yet socially or culturally explainable. It excludes conditions that have been stigmatized as queer or abnormal due to institutional oppression. It does not include temporary conditions of dysfunction caused by medication or other forms of substance misuse.
