I love it! The format is easy to read and the verb is well described (the numbering and italicized clarifications. I also like the idea of having examples and related verbs.

Am I missing the examples that PeterB referred to, or did he find them in the original article? I assumed the examples will be completed in the future.
Oh my how do you keep up with everything and find time to answer people’s questions??

I guess actually reading the examples helps. So, they are still in the preparation.

Lordy knows I’m not one to understand the technical difference between adverbs and adjectives etc except by ear. But wouldn’t the english translation be “…have a little patience” because Geduld is a noun? And groovy new addition, yahoo!
