Just the title basically.



Thank you for any, and all, help!

  • Just to make sure I understand the point of the question, are you asking about the validity of sentences with multiple がs in it? Or is something else the focus? Commented Apr 13, 2020 at 21:00
  • I suppose that would be part of it, yes. Along with the way the superlative has been used. Commented Apr 13, 2020 at 21:15
  • Roger, thanks. (“superlative”=最上級形容詞=この「一番」の使用は正しいのかとのこと) Commented Apr 13, 2020 at 22:03

Yes, both sentences are grammatically correct and perfectly understandable. One thing that looks weird to me is 私の before 母/父, which is redundant and should be omitted. In Japanese, you should use 私の only when it is necessary to avoid confusion. The 私の at the beginning of the sentence is usually unnecessary, too.

  • (私の)家族の中で母が料理が一番上手です。
  • (私の)家族の中で私が父が一番好きです。

In addition, in order to avoid two が's, people probably tend to say 家族の中で私が父一番好きです more often in the latter case. See: Usage of ~を好き outside of embedded clauses
