|your name||Noted on a site as 'JLPT 2' level.|| |
|halx||I can't find this in my copies of JPLT2 grammar...|| |
|bamboo4||English version of the example is kinda awkward.|| |
|dc||Its JLPT1|| |
|blabby||A good translation of AあってのB might be "B exists because of A" or more naturally, "B wouldn't be anything without A"?|| |
|bamboo4||AあってのB means "there ain't no B except for A."|
