A few more examples of Idiom Neutral from the original grammar

Friday, May 21, 2010

11 days ago I finished typing the English grammar of Idiom Neutral and the German grammar is also pretty much the same, but the Dutch grammar I found yesterday (see the files section in the Idiom Neutral group to read it yourself) is written a few years later and has added a number of examples to some of the sections which is a nice surprise as actual content in the language in these grammars is fairly sparse.
