What does "SVO" stand for? How is this informational?

> What does "SVO" stand for?

I’m just guessing here: (S)ubject (V)erb (O)bject?

Isn't it obvious enough that there is a subject, a verb and an object ?
According to me, this tag adds no information at all so it should be a list.
And in any case, tags should NEVER be acronyms. Only 8% of Tatoeba's contributors are native English speakers. That means 92% of contributors have to decode obscure English acronyms (and in this case, even the natives probably have to as well). This is not acceptable.

>Try clicking the tags to get a list of similar sentences and I think you can understand the value of tags.

you can achieve this with lists.

>If you Google "purpose of tags", I think you might get a better understanding of what tags are all about.

You're so condescending, as always. I perfectly know what tags are for when you don't. Websites and services are my job!

Anyway, you still don't account for using English acronyms when 92% of Tatoeba users are not English native speakers.
