The Chinese Grammar Wiki Experiment

Peter

榜眼
A Chinese Grammar Wiki would make a useful addition to Pleco... so I thought. Enclosed are my results in form of an E-C dictionary.

Difficulties:
- Usability is questionable. It is not really a E-C dictionary, most pages have long English titles.
- The wiki uses templates for info boxes and other presentation artefacts. There isn't the screen space on mobile phone to draw these. So they are all omitted.
- There are 100's of redirected pages. I have omitted these.
- Lots of other mediawiki "gunk" still exists in the output.
- Much formatting is lost when converting to Pleco's unicode-based markup language. (V4 of course will help address that :)

Thank you kindly, a huge resource entirely on Pleco!

One small thing, I get "@@" signs in front of every paragraph on my iPhone. Not a big issue, but probably not intended. See:

FWIW, I have made some inquiries about this title and if we manage to come up with a good way to present it in Pleco it sounds like would probably be possible for us to license it. (Haven’t yet because I have not in fact cracked that particular problem)
