This page is largely a placeholder for purposes of organization. The reference pages, as I term them, which are to be linked to this page address language-related topics that apply to multiple languages. While every language gives its own special twists to how it uses things like grammatical gender, verbstense, voice, mood and aspect or other common features of languages, understanding those features can be helped greatly by recognizing the cross-language patterns of them. Therein lies the need for these reference pages since eventually many languages will be described in the language pages.
