Suppose I want to ask for an example, artificial or from literature, of a certain kind of sentence in Latin. I might want to see a certain construction (like accusativus cum infinitivo in a subordinate clause), a certain word in a certain form (like future imperatives of facere), or a sentence satisfying some other condition (like having every letter of the alphabet). How should I ask such questions?
I do hope that such questions can be on-topic if asked well, and the tag example-request has quite a few questions already. That said, I recognize some issues:
- It is not easy to show effort in finding examples myself. If I have found no good examples, it's hard to show that I tried to find any.
- The question can come across as too broad. There might be myriads of good examples out there, but I only want one or two, and I will accept an excellent answer when I see one. I would like to know how to efficiently narrow such questions down.
I think having illuminating examples of interesting phenomena is an important ingredient in learning anything, including Latin. But I don't know how to pose such questions well, so some guidelines or suggestions would be appreciated.
