Grammar FAQ

Postby Ongakuka » Fri 06.02.2006 11:03 am

I noticed previously that there was no Grammar FAQs (under the availible option) and consulted Clay about putting one together. Obviously, we already have a spetacular resource in the Grammar section of Clay's, though we still get the repeated questions to do with grammar.

If that isn't a good enough reason (and it probably isn't,) making a grammar FAQ would provide us with an archive of common or difficult questions that have been asked in the past, in a Q/A format. All I'm asking is whether you think this is a good idea or not. If you do, it would be great if you would leave a suggestion about a frequently asked questioned that would be suitable to enter into it.

I'm not saying this is definitely going to happen, but since the option is there, it would sure be nice to have a completed document sitting there for people to browse over. I will be scanning previous threads to find suitable entries.

Thanks everyone! Ongakuka

It's not a problem, but we have different requests here in this forum part also. ;)

I've done it a while ashita, don't remember if I did it before Tony came or not.

Thanks, ashitaka. I'll be making a list of every idea put down by members of this site, so if the project goes forth, your names will be mentioned for the suggestion that you make. Isn't that delightful?

音楽家さん。excellent idea!!
FAQの作成は、実にすばらしいことだと思います。
I have been wondering how to make FAQ.
There are many good thread stock we already had.
but I gave it up because of my English ability. :p


For instance, な adjective and いadjective is kind of FAQ.
おおきい ←→おおきな
Olacle-san 's post (Posted on 08-03) is good answer.

Causitive Form is also FAQ.
even Keat-san asked

たらvs れば also.
Question on Verb Forms ← nice thread.
others, color word like白/黒/緑 . we can say白い家 黒い家 but can't say 緑い木.( was already discussed in previous threads)
はvs が etc.etc.
I can not write FAQ though, I gladly search the past thread, I hope.
So I wish to join you if you don't mind.
  
Thanks in advance. :)
edit:addition "Causitive Form" , たら/ れば.
eheh see also this
Food for FAQ

FAQ? (さっちゃん 's post.)

This sounds like a great idea to me.
I am sure beginner's like myself ask the same questions over and over. The search feature is fine if the correct search words are entered. However, I have had times when the search feature turned up nothing and a member provided a link to a thread with the answer to my question.

Coco-san, this stuff is great!

So I wish to join you if you don't mind.


Of course you can join. You've already made a massive contribution by digging this stuff up:)
I'll try and put this in the correct English format, but I'll need your help incase I don't understand something. Thanks!

Tony... I mean, Ongakuka

once again, the smell of summer is in the air.

maybe once the site is moved to a new server we can add some Wiki software and tie it into the current authentication system. it would be a great place for things like FAQs and link collections and other things that benefit from being editable by site members.

our very own Wikipedia... WagaWiki perhaps...

anyways, keep thinking about stuff that would be useful in a FAQ and come up with some ideas about organization and stuff. i'll look into setting up and modifying the Wikipedia software and see if i can get it tied into the current site infrastructure.
