[ZH] Chinese Collective Noun 中文量词 Problems

There are several problems about Chinese collective nouns: 1. cannot distinguish some collective nouns with the same pronunciations; 2. cannot detect errors about some collective nouns for describing plural objects; 3. cannot detect the inappropriate collective nouns for depicting natural landscapes.

I made several corrections as below in XML forms and hopefully they are helpful in improving the quality of LT in Chinese language error detection.
