Learn to talk about missing eyes and limbs, as in “Shigeru Mizuki was a manga artist with one arm.” By extension, the “one of a pair” sense of 隻 enables you to say, “There's no trace of the enemy” and “He never misses any of his teacher's words.” Also learn to discuss ships with 隻, saying, “Don't risk putting all the cargo in one ship” and “Some ships are sailing on the sea.”
