¿Sería válida una etiqueta acerca de El Quijote?

No creo que sea apropiado crearla. Este sitio es sobre el idioma español y, por tanto, el foco está en la lingüística, la sintaxis, la gramática, etc. Una etiqueta específica sobre El Quijote pondría ...

There is no sister site here, similar to ELL for ELU; hence some proposals

Could we make two versions of the "gender" tag?

I don't see the need and I don't see the benefit of it. It could have helped to visualize it better if you had propose the name of the tags, but even if we say género-personas and género-...

Is there a difference really between [tag:reflexivos] and [tag:pronominales]

I looked around quite a bit a few months ago for answers to a question that has to do with this, namely, is the term "verbo pronominal" (or its equivalent) employed in linguistics, or by grammarians, ...

¿Qué diferencia hay entre las etiquetas "nombres" y "sustantivos"? Renombremos [nombres] a [nombres-propios]

Estoy de acuerdo. Si tenemos una etiqueta sustantivos, que la etiqueta nombres incluya los sustantivos, a secas, es inconsistente. Y renombrar la etiqueta también me parece buena idea, aclara el ...

¿Deberíamos juntar modismos / frases idiomáticas / expresiones en una única etiqueta? Should we use a unique tag for idioms?

What is the purpose of "meaning-in-context" tag?
