explanation for 徹底

Post by mella » Mon 08.29.2011 4:30 am

里で徹底したある掟が作らんだ。
A rule, who is complete, was created for this village.
I think that my translation is not correct, but 徹底 means completeness or thoroughness.

A strict rule
Don't complain to me that people kick you when you're down. It's your own fault for lying there

Tk you chikara.
So should I translate everytime noun+ したある as an adjective ? It seems better than mine construction.
Tk you very much!

More like it.

This is 徹底した + ある掟.
したある doesn't exist as a verb construction (not to be confused with してある).

Incidentally, what's going on with the verb at the end of the OP's sentence...? >_>;

Maybe it's actually a contraction of 作らないのだ? (or actually 作らぬのだ, but same meaning)

里で徹底したある掟が作らんだ
This is evidently a typo. It must be 里で徹底したある掟が作られた。A certain strict rule was made in the village.
