I’m still working out how to capture information about grammar that I am taught.
As a first stab, I thought I might use the organizational structure of Yeon’s “Korean: A Comprehensive Grammar”.
I didn’t start off with a desire to learn grammar. I simply want to be able to have a mental framework in which to store the bits of flotsam and jetsam that KDA is tossing my way. Delving a bit to see what kind of structure I should use to contain my bits of grammar, it seems like quicksand. There are more than 10 types of grammar? Heavens! I can’t even wrap my brain around one.
I skim through pages on linguistics, lexicons, lemma, and grammar. I am not educated in the field of linguistics. I don’t know how to create a dictionary. Yet, I can’t keep track of the gazillion scribbled notes. I need a way to process and store this *stuff*.
