Discussion and comments
〜は,言う必要がないくらい当然で〜
sureshnihon
shouldn't the translation of example #3376 be like: "He CAN'T even read, let alone write."
eastmaels
changed, tx. BTW - feel free to edit/correct examples. thats what the edit button is for!
dc
dc how can we edit modify examples? In re-design version, I cannot. Are there more columns next to user name of each entry?
Miki
miki - hmm. i will look into it...
dc
There are other examples in this batch that requires finetuning. Think, DC!
bamboo4
#3384 should be without ひ after 自転車. 彼女は自転車はもちろんオートバイにも乗れない。
Miki
miki - are you still unable to edit examples? I fixed the commented one above (also the translation was wrong).
dc
I thought we fixed that. apologies, will look into it.
dc
Is this read as "Ha Mochiron" or "Wa Mochiron"?
tenkamuteki82
I noticed in all the examples the はもちろん is followed by a 〜も statement.

is the も required to make this statement valid?
tigert
Just spotted in example [#6617]: 「スポッツ」。Should that be 『スポーツ』 かな?
foggynotion
Why is #3382's example note 研究 and not 勉強?
nazonatte69
#8169 #8170 #8171 and #8174 are just examples of the word もちろん, rather than the grammar pattern.
