I asked the question What do all the different meanings of 'as' share in common?, which originally finished with the three following questions:
- How did "all so" or "so" (alswa) proliferate to all these different meanings?
- What semantic idea or concept underlies this polysemy/polyfunctionality?
- What do all these different meanings have in common?
I recieved the following comment from Chappo:
Antinatalist, I notice you've been asking your questions related to this book on Literature and Writing as well. There's no problem with asking questions, but please make sure they're useful, alswa asking too many questions in the one post risks it being closed as "too broad".
It was closed shortly thereafter with the "too broad" closure reason:
Please edit the question to limit it to a specific problem with enough detail to identify an adequate answer. Avoid asking multiple distinct questions at once. See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
Then I received the following comment from TaliesinMerlin:
Question 1 is an interesting question and one I could answer. Question 2 feels odd and I don't know how to answer. Question 3 is either trivial (they have a common history in common) or unanswerable. I voted to close because the range of those three questions is too broad to answer in a single question.
Afterwards, I decided to edit out the third question from the list in an attempt to fix the question. Is it narrow enough now?
