I need help with translating a book into my native language. The paragraph I'm translating now is about some "artificial" grammatical rules in the English language and I need help to understand those.
On English Language Learners we can help explaining English texts in basic English, as long as you
- limit your question so that it is about a few words or a single phrase (but it's good to have the entire paragraph in question, for context)
- provide enough details including your own thoughts on the matter; that way we can provide an answer that suits your needs, rather than a generic one which may be too complex or too simple.
Specifically, because it's a paragraph about English grammar, English Language & Usage may work too, but the same requirements apply.
Finally, if there's a Stack Exchange dedicated to your native language (here is an unofficial list), you might get some help there. Again, the same advice applies.
