Hi again.

One more thing: can anybody please elaborate on how I should use LaTex as a tool or a typeset (?) of glossing.

Thank you.

Re: About Glossing

Hi all.

Thank you for your advice. I'll try to improve my glossing skills.
I have made a sentence (also with glossing) in my signature:

tatan-ik bemasatska-s dedzen-ilik.
wind-VBZ 2DU-INCL be-FUT
Let us go forth.


Is that good enough?

Re: Ramblings of a 中文 Learner

Is "點" a measure word for grass? And how is 有 being used in that sentence? Can you give me a gloss or word by word translation there? The more literal the translation, the better! 1.

Re: Ramblings of a 中文 Learner

I just wanted to point out to XXXVII that using 女人 can be considered quite offensive. You may catch young girls mock-insulting each other with phrases like 你这个女人! but do note that you will not get away with the same, presuming you are male. Strangely, 女的 as in 来了一个女的 is often used as an informal wo...

Something about etymology

For example, the word 'good' is originated from PIE root *ghedh- "to unite, be associated, suitable". That's a kind of method, is...
