eastmaelsshouldn't the translation of example # be like: "He CAN'T even read, let alone write." 
dcchanged, tx. BTW - feel free to edit/correct examples. thats what the edit button is for! 
Mikidc how can we edit modify examples? In re-design version, I cannot. Are there more columns next to user name of each entry? 
dcmiki - hmm. i will look into it... 
bamboo4There are other examples in this batch that requires finetuning. Think, DC!  
Miki# should be without ひ after 自転車. 彼女は自転車はもちろんオートバイにも乗れない。
 
dcmiki - are you still unable to edit examples? I fixed the commented one above (also the translation was wrong). 
dcI thought we fixed that. apologies, will look into it. 
tenkamuteki82Is this read as "Ha Mochiron" or "Wa Mochiron"?  
tigertI noticed in all the examples the はもちろん is followed by a 〜も statement.

is the も required to make this statement valid?
 
foggynotionJust spotted in example [#]: 「スポッツ」。Should that be 『スポーツ』 かな?  
nazonatte69Why is #'s example note 研究 and not 勉強?
