Here is the tag wiki of the tag:

Particles, conjugations and endings for verbs and adjectives, and general sentence structure.

But don't we already have (with all the particle-specific one like , etc), , , and tags?

So, isn't this tag actually redundant? Is there any kind of grammar questions that are tagged with this tag but are not covered by any of the more specialized tags?

I have no strong opinion on whether tag should be kept or removed. (Honestly speaking, I do not look at tags when I read questions.) However, even if all grammatical questions can be tagged by more specific tags, I do not think that that means that we should remove the general tag.


I would leave this in for people who know what particles are or as the default fall back tag for new comers to use.

  • But should regular members edit newcomers' questions to remove this tag and replace with specific ones?

    @Lukman The more specific ones can be added, but I don't think the general one should be removed. There are people following that tag as a catch-all for finding grammar-related questions and completely removing it means they'd have to track a dozen more specific tags instead (including ones that may not have been created yet). It's not like we're filling up the existing tag slots right now.
