Yeah, that makes sense. ありがとうございます。
Would it be possible to include as Fun Fact the “sister” expression ちょうだい (頂戴)? The text could be based on the one used by Tae Kim. One example could be the intro to this Pizzicato Five song (no kidding!).
Thank you very much for your consideration!
I come back with this suggestion as Fun Fact for this grammar point. I think it is the proper place for this “sister” expression ちょうだい, which I guess is of common usage.
Thank you again for your consideration!
