What if I have more than a few questions about a chapter in a book? I don't think it's a good idea to make many threads about the same chapter.

    You wouldn't be the first to ask a long string of questions; there is precedent for this. I would try to limit the number of questions to a reasonable rate, though (say, three or maybe four a day) so that the board doesn't get saturated with too many questions from the same book all at once.

The policy for ELL is clear: do not ask multiple queries in a single question on ELL. It doesn't fit the StackExchange model where questions can be left as a future reference (making it easier to merge duplicate questions), given multiple individualized answers, and can be voted on independently by users.

  1. If you have multiple queries that need to be asked, please ask them in separate questions.

  2. You must show your specific difficulty with the question is, and what you think the answer ought to be and why. Do not just copy questions from your homework or a book verbatim.

  3. I am not a lawyer, but you might want to be careful about copying large chunks of a book too. Asking a couple of questions you're having troubles with is fine, but copying large quantities of copyrighted material onto a StackExchange site is not a good idea.
