Last year, on Lang-8, I wrote a text and there was the following sentence there:
I tried to mean "I will stop to write English texts (on Lang-8)".
I have got two corrections:
Once that I tried to mean that I will stop to write in English there, is it possible to use the first sentence, with the intransitive verb 止まる, in this case? Does that sentence mean something like "it'll be stopped to write English"? Maybe my original sentence in Japanese confused the corrector. The second correction, with the implied subject, that is me, sounds grammatically natural to me. I know the idea of transitivity but I got confused with these two sentences.
Besides, I have read around there that the direct object of a verb can be the topic of the sentence, switching を to は. Can I say that
英語で書くのを止めます。 are, at least grammatically, the same? If so, are both commonly used?
