            exceptionally special with respect to his/her source language aspects. 
            For example: for the '''Phrases_Idioms "cats and dogs" in english''' we can markup as

+ {{{ <sentence_cat name="phrases_idioms" meaning="heavily"> cats and dogs
-  </sentence_cat> }}}
+ </sentence_cat> }}}
            Such metadata will be of an immense help to localazation process (in order
            to find an appropriate phrases & idioms in a target language) without

+ '''Adjectives''' are words that ''describe'' or modify another person or thing in the 
+ sentence. Adjectives are the words that describe a noun or pronoun. 
+ ''Kinds of Adjectives:-''
+ ''General / Quality Adjective:'' to show the kind or quality of a noun or pronoun, 
+ e.g. large, good, fresh, honest etc.
+ ''Abstract Adjective:'' wounded, rich, poor etc.
+ '' Quantitative Adjective:'' some, much, little, enough, whole, half etc.
+ ''Ordinal Adjective:'' first, second, third etc.
+ ''Numeral Adjective:'' five, few, many, most, several, sundry etc.
+ ''Proper Nounian / Nominal Adjectives'' are formed from Proper nouns (e.g.,
+ ''Indian'' tea, ''French'' wines etc.)
+ ''Material Adjective:'' sandy, earthen, golden etc.
+ ''Compound Adjective:'' dew-wet, open-heart, ''clean ruddy'' farmer,   ''long 
+ white'' basket etc.
+ ''Interrogative Adjective:'' ''Whose'' book is this ? ''Which'' way shall we go ? 
+ ''What'' manner of man is he ?
+ ''Exclamatory Adjective:'' ''What'' an idea ! ''What'' a blessing !
+ ''Emphasizing Adjective:'' I saw it with my ''own'' eyes. That is the ''very'' thing we 
+ want.
+ ''Comparative Adjective:'' better, smaller, taller etc.
+ ''Superlative Adjective:'' best, smallest, tallest, worst etc.
+ ''Demonstrative Adjective:'' ''This'' boy is strong. ''That'' boy is industrious. Don't 
+ be in ''such'' a hurry. I hate ''such'' things. ''These'' mangoes are sweet.
+ A typical example is shown below in order to show how grammatical knowledge can be used as XML markups for the sentence "This boy is strong." However, word-level markups for all words in a sentence may not be required. We need to markup only at language specific parts. 
+ {{{<pos_cat name="adjective" type="demonstrative"> This </pos_cat> 
+ <pos_cat name="noun" type="common"> boy </pos_cat> 
+ <pos_cat name="verb" type="weak"> is </pos_cat> 
+ <pos_cat name="adjective" type="general"> strong </pos_cat> .}}} 
+ The same sentence "This boy is strong." can also be marked up in the following way without using finer parts-of-speech categories (depending on the requirements of a translation parser for a specifc language-pair).
+ {{{<pos_cat name="adjective"> This </pos_cat> 
+ <pos_cat name="noun"> boy </pos_cat> 
+ <pos_cat name="verb"> is </pos_cat> 
+ <pos_cat name="adjective"> strong </pos_cat> .}}}
