thanks for answering my question

Hello,
I appreciate your taking the time to answer my question. I don't rely on any one book, just whatever a Google search may turn up. It's not that I have Chinese teachers asking me the questions. Rather, I want to know for my own knowledge. In the future I'll check sources you suggest. :)
