English Word Typos


What is the margin for spelling (meaning) answers? I typed a bit too fast and am regretting that, but I know sometimes it will accept the answer (thosuand instead of thousand.)
Might be a dumb thread to ask this but I figure it’ll be buried under different topics soon enough.

Depends on the length, but for something like “to say humbly,” three characters is about what it takes to be marked incorrect, which is what you did (omitting ‘to’ and b>v).
Something short, like “see,” has no margin for error at all.

As a rule, verbs always begin with “to”.

Thank you for the replies ^^

I never separated words that acted as verbs or nouns in my head in English, I’d probably fail a grammar course if I took one now. な adjectives seem to behave similar to nouns, at least in sentence composition, if I’m getting that right.

Aye, the main difference between な-adjectives and nouns is that you use な to connect them to other nouns, but の to connect nouns to other nouns.

Also, just like i-adjectives, you have to add さ to make it into a real noun:

美しい>美しさ
便利>便利さ
