First time ....

Please help me correct the errors I know I will have...

ガ ほしい です みる せいざ
I want to see contstellations


I know Japanese is S-O-V so do I put せいざ before want since to see is an infinative?

Or せいざがみたい(です) (Either が or を can be used here; their is some difference in nuance)
ほしい is only used for wanting things (or, with -te form of the verb, for wanting someone else to do something); for wanting to do something yourself, the たい conjugation is used.

日本語三つ半*がある:文典と言葉と漢字!

:D
hopefully I got the meaning across...

文典と文法はどみわける?
も「みわける」と「ちがう」のちがいは何ですか?

*三つ半 is 'three stroke alarm...' But that's not what I mean... I mean 'three halves.' :(
I have more questions than actual comments...

Sometimes I think that I'm afraid of thinking, and that scares me.

文典というのは文法を説明した書物です。 文法と違いますよ。

私ならこう言う、「日本語には、三つの半分があります。」

すみません、けれどそれは分かりません。一つの文は「文法の書物がある」と言うでしょう?でも、僕は二つの文が分かりません。

すみません :(

別の言い方を使えば、
文典は文法の書物(しょもつ)です。 文法ではありません。

ああ、ありがとうございます! :)

文典は本ですね。典は「本」の感じです、「辞典」的。文法が話すと文典がよむ。

話したものでも書いたものでも、文法は文法です。

文典はただ文法を説明した本です。
実をいうと、知らなくてもいい言葉です。

ミスをしました。 書物は「しょもの」ではありません。 
「しょもつ」です。 すみませんでした。
