comment Question regarding えば〜ほど
"れば~ほど" does not work with nouns - Not true according to one of my grammar books. I'll have to find the example later since I don't have it with me, but it's something along the lines of ビジネスマンのほど〜 → "The better you are at being a business man ..." / "The more of a (good) business man you are ..."

comment Difference between progressive verb forms and i-adjectives
悲しい人 doesn't sound strange at all to me. But it sounds more like a group of people; "a sad people". More like 悲しい人(々).

Why did this get downvoted? Sounds like a perfectly reasonable question to me. I'll upvote to counter.

Do you have an example sentence that ends in that is not the "but" one?
