I don't see any Chinglish

All of your sentence translations are wonderfully grammattical.  I thought Chinglish usually involved some twisted grammar mixed with Chinese culture or idioms.  So  there seems to be no Chinglish here.

The only comment I have is that #8 needs to use the word "deceased", which means dead, not cease, which means to stop doing something (but does not apply to living).
LSR.  龙诗人  or  龍詩人
A crater on the planet Mercury is named 李白. (Li Bai)

Thanks for your overall  responses ,cordial chaps. Also I make an apology at the false one as Leungshuren picked out .

Long ago I had intention to select some sentences easily colored with chinglish and post here . In order to avoid first impression of false answers , I then just gave out the right ones . That is the reason it arose in your heads .

The thread will be continued  , I look forward to more comments on them .
