comment How do you avoid multiple が in a sentence
@Axioplase Is there a restriction with the use of the particle が multiple times in a sentence? If there isn't then there is no need to circumvent it? Does it cause ambiguity?

comment How do you avoid multiple が in a sentence
@Lukman Is it possible for it to be 詳細のクエリは ( 削除フラグが ( 0がありません ) ) instead? And for your version, I'm having difficulty understanding (削除フラグが0) due to a lack of a verb. I'm assuming the copula だ gets elided when がありません is added after that. i.e. ( (削除フラグが0[だ]) がありません ).

comment How do you avoid multiple が in a sentence
@Lukman thanks for putting the sentence in parentheses, it's much clearer to me now. I'm not sure if it is grammatical or not. Now I think the question "why can't I have multiple がs in a sentence?" is begging to be asked.

comment What is あっちゃう in this sentence?
sounds like the contracted form of ~てしまう for ~なくあって. But I'm not sure if "~なくあって" should exist. (There is ~なくて, ~なかった, but I'm not sure if there is a past+て-form. To my current knowledge it's not possible to have both past and て-form simultaneously.)

comment How to resolve two indirect objects? (Prohibition of two に in a sentence?)
I have a feeling that marking a something with に関して or について makes it an adjunct.

@sawa How about 私はこの計画に彼と同意する ? (using the reciprocal-と as in 彼と遊ぶ)

comment How to resolve two indirect objects? (Prohibition of two に in a sentence?)
@Axioplase that's because the two に in your sentence serve difference purposes. The first is for indirect object, the second is purpose of action.

comment How to resolve two indirect objects? (Prohibition of two に in a sentence?)
Just "agreeing with the person" says nothing about what is being agreed on in the absence of context. And "agreeing with something" says nothing about the people who are in agreement in the absence of context. I'm trying to express all of it in a single sentence.

comment Is there a difference between 赤{あか} and 赤色{あかいろ}?
@DaveMG Acknowledged. I'm trying to analyse point 1. further and hopefully include examples so that it will be more "about the Japanese" rather than just separating them by grammatical constructs. I have some ideas but just when it seems to be consistent with words/phrases that I find, suddenly a few more appear that break the logic.
