> It doesn't count. You didn't know.

Did you mean to write the following?

It doesn't count, you know.

TRANG's policy is that we not change things that aren't wrong.

If you want to see similar phrases on the Web, here are some searches.

"spent the major part of"

"spent the major part of the week"

> play the hero

I don't think this sounds like a logical imperative, so my guess is LB accidentally contributed this as a sentence, when he/she was trying to search for sentences with this verb phrase.

Deleted.

It's here.

> Can you explain what do you want actually?

This isn't quite right.

> I don't want to use your computer

Somehow, an exclamation mark seems inappropriate to me for this kind of sentence in English.

Perhaps it's natural in the other language, but would more naturally not have one in English.

> Maybe the Mona Lisa was the most famous painting that ever invented.

This is strange.

Here's the link.

If a native speaker advanced contributor is willing to adopt this, I can remove the "red" warning.

> Are you planning to develop it, using also grammar criteria?
Not likely, since that would require a lot more manual labor than just looking up words.

> Do you attribute only one single level to each word?
The level is the lowest level that word has.
For words, with multiple meanings (and thus possibly more than one level), this type of vocabulary analysis won't always get it right.

> May I ask which software do you use to sort out the sentences?

I used the website listed at the top of the page, and then did some manual editing.



I'm more likely to stick the the multiple Graded Reader Levels, since this divides the vocabulary into smaller steps, so is likely more useful for many students.

Here are the levels, listed with explanations and an easy way to search.

There used to be a statement somewhere on tatoeba.org that explained that the reason CC-BY was chosen for this project was that under French law "public domain" wasn't allowed and that authors needed to be credited. If that law still applies, then perhaps sentences from the Tatoeba Project can never be CC-0.

You will notice there are a number of negative numbers in the "since last week" column due to deletions by the duplicate-merging script that Trang ran last week.
