[ Edit This Grammar Entry ]
| Notes: |
|＊にとっての is simply the prenominal form of にとって. It doesn't have some mystical separate meaning from にとって, but as a compound particle, にとって(の) does have different connotations from には, which does *not* have a prenominal form.|
太郎にとっての問題は... (The problem for Tarou is...)
〜にとってのいい機会 （A good opportunity for〜)
その歌手は私にとってのアイドルの一人だ。 (That singer is an idol to me.)
＊にとって(の) VS には: Because of the particle は, には gives a sense of contrast in some contexts while にとって(の) does not.
FOR EXAMPLE: これは様々[には/にとって]無視できない問題だ。
In the above example, the sense with には can imply that not for others but for us, or at least for us, this is a problem which cannot be ignored. The sentence with にとって does not have this implication.
Ｎ1 + にとっての + Ｎ2

|Amatuka||Note that ホームページ was generalised to mean any web-page by the Japanese|| |
|Amatuka||Note also that newspaper & press release headlines often drop the [する] off the end.|| |
|adamstudio||What is the difference between:|
Does using にとっての create a certain feeling? Is it more bookish? I can't sense the nuance.
|bamboo4||# is very awkward in terms of the Japanese text.|
|誠||Ya, # is awkward. |
It should be :
|誠||A more beautiful account given by my 先生 is :|
|bamboo4||You don't need "大切な”and 我々自信の should be 我々自身の|| |
|bamboo4||# does not belong here.|| |
|Miki||Agree. の is part of のるかそるか（伸るか反るか）|| |
|赤毛||I tried to move # to # of and put an example of JPLT1 instead. The English may be awkward, and thanks for the help for improving the translation if you can. From my point of view, the Japanese is correct and now belong here.|| |
