Missing grammar list


Sarah discusses it in this video (~20 minutes in)




not sure if they might be discussed during other grammar points, but couldnt find them via search

  • となると
  • いっさい … ない



Hi all, apologies if this is not the correct forum and happy to be redirected.

The very first grammar point within Quartet 1 textbook Lesson 1 (といえば) is not included in the Quartet I [Grammar] Deck.

がため(に) being a more old fashioned written form meaning “because” - e.g., 自分のような女が母親であるがため (this is from the sentence I saw this in)
んがため(に)being a more old fashioned written form meaning “in order to” - e.g., 買わんがために

Sorry if it these are mentioned in this thread already. I had a quick look and I think they aren’t but I might have missed them.

One that I just spotted in the wild that I think would make a good addition to Bunpro: AといえばA. This isn’t the same one in A Handbook of Japanese Grammar Patterns or the Dictionary of Basic/Intermediate/Advanced Japanese Grammar. I’m referring to when the same chunk occurs before and after といえば, as in this explanation.

Interestingly, unlike that page, the quote that I found in the wild didn’t have が or a contrastive second clause. It’s from this article about 和算. The sentence occurs at the bottom of the first page: 「これに対して、日本古代の数え方は十進法ですから、これが特徴といえば特徴です。」

Today I faced a new grammar point I did not know, and that I couldn’t find on bunpro: つきの

It says that this grammar point can give a new function to an object.

カメラ付きの携帯電話 is a portable phone with a digital camera

The kanji were from my ime, looking it up in kanji or hiragana is a miss on bunpro. The grammar explanations on busuu are pretty dry.

Another examples bellow:

This is just 付く in a nominalised form used as a suffix. See this:


And the definition in English as well.

I think the meaning is fairly clear without explanation.

The やしない in this sentence is missing (maybe, it is so hard to search) and not on the new update list. The example is from 人間失格. The grammar is listed here as “N0” so maybe it is on your as yet unpublished N0 list already.
