|Amatuka||With kanji - 余り. See also variant あんまり|| |
|Amatuka||あんまり is often used on its own to mean "That's too much!" / "That's horrible!" "ソレはあんまりよ！"|| |
|Miki||ex#137 This would be more natural この話は本当にしてはあまりにもうますぎる。|| |
|bamboo4||I agree with Miki-san. Let's change #137.|| |
|Miki||ex#4429 English should be 'I was too glad to jump up.' || |
|dc||#4429: how about: I was so glad I jumped up?|| |
|infinite_trial||shouldn't ex [#4417] be removed here and moved to amari 2? || |
|bamboo4||I agree with "infinite_trial." Also, in #4415, "late up night" should be "late at nights."|| |
|誠||Shouldn't ex#137, ex #4413, #4414, #4415, #4417 be moved to another あまりcategory?|| |
|tw||Just to clarify, can のあまり only be used with nouns or adjectives (+sa)?|| |
|shiho-chan||very colloquial masculine version: あんま|| |
|S.G.||誠 is absolutely right about ex[#137, #4413, #4414, #4415, #4417]! The あまり in these examples has another meaning ("too") and they should be moved!|| |
|赤毛||I moved amari entry to noamari which didn't exist.|
I moved Ex #137, #4413, #4414, #4415 and #4417 to the amari entry I created for them, and they became Ex #6790, #6791, #6792, #6793 and #6794 respectively.
I changed #137, #4413, #4414, #4415, #4417 so they fit for the noamari entry.
Is this too much contribution?/参加の余りでしょうか。
After that, I don't understand "昇任したさ" in Ex #4433. 高い makes 高さ by move to substantive. Does したい makes したさ the same way?
