I don't normally come on ELL, I'm a native English speaker, but I don't think I have much real capacity to answers the questions of others on it.
Recently in my post-grad research in computational linguistics, I've found that my (primary/secondary) education has been lacking in covering parts of speech and various other syntactic questions I now find myself having.
So I am attempting rectify that though reading books etc, but when I get stuck I come (as always :-D ) to stack exchange.
My latest two questions it has been suggested would be a better fit here:
- ELU: For non-modal/auxiliary verb, is the non-3rd person singular present form always the same as the base form?
- Lingistics: If two verbs are in a row, is the first always an Auxiliary?
I now understand why the linguistics one was closed. So I am wondering if those would have been more on-topic here, or on English Language Usage.
I always overlook the site, thinking it is just for people learning English as a second(/third/...) language, but perhaps I am wrong?
