|Amatuka||Two slightly different usages here (split them out if you want to).|
1. 'In order to'
2. 'Because of'
|Amatuka||Usually either ___の為に___ or [V-る]為に___. |
But not always :-P
|Amatuka||Hey DC, I'm catching up with you on Grammar entries :-P|| |
|dc||thats why i made the batch form, so i can speed ahead! || |
|Grant||hah, I've NEVER seen the kanji for tame before. || |
|dc||tame is also used sometimes to mean "therefore/so", like node|
nothing pops out,so the user doesnt know what to do
|Saralynne||為 seems a bit like the word 'para' in Spanish... give or take a few uses, no?|| |
