Dear All.

I just today completed my initial study of Classifier/Measure Words/Measurement units.  I was pleasantly surprised to end up with a list of at least 283.  I have been self-studying Mandarin from my home in the Caribbean for a little more than 1 1/2 years.  I know that my list isn’t complete so I turn to you in this forum for assistance.  I keep getting headaches every time I use an online dictionary that reveals a cl/mw so to avoid to keep checking if I know this measure word I decided to create a master list in alphabetical  order.  

Your feedback is essential.  If persons express an interest in this topic I can then post my handwritten list (both in Traditional and Simplified characters) and give you my sources for confirmation.  

I  would like you to add to my list which will make it more comprehensive.

Thank you
