comment ¿Me pueden ayudar a deconstruir las siguientes oraciones? Can you help me deconstruct these sentences?
@Flimzy Yes, I have read the FAQ. I am looking for answers that are "supported by ... specific expertise". Which is exactly why Google Translate is not sufficient. The whole purpose of the deconstructed sentences is to not to know what they mean on the level of basic translation, but to understand the right way of conveying the simple, yet specific, meanings contained therein using Spanish. In some cases, there may be more than one way of saying it. Just like you can say "The apple is red." or "It is a red apple." in English, but I am looking for a semantically equivalent translation.

So, if this site isn't here to "teach people Spanish" or, help them further their knowledge of Spanish, what is it here for? I find it really rude that you're basically closing this question because of my lack of knowledge and desire to learn the basics. Questions on this level would never be closed in StackOverflow.

Flimzy, it is not a simple translation request. I've explained that I am asking for instruction relating to proper grammar. If it were a simple translation request, I could simply type it into Google Translate or ask a Spanish speaking friend. I am hoping to get an answer from a bilingual person who knows both Spanish and English grammar well.

La intención es que la deconstrucción de las frases me ayuda para entender cómo el español se estructuran de forma diferente que el Inglés.
