I just posted a question about verb and adjective endings. How many verb/adjective endings are there?

There are tags 'verb', 'verb-endings' and 'adjective', but not 'adjective-endings'. Should there be one, and what's the protocol for adding it?

    All you need to do to create a tag is type it in (as free text) when you ask a question. Jun 26, 2016 at 6:34
  • Thank you. I tried that the first time and nothing happened. I've just tried it again and it worked. My motivation is that I would tag questions about the semantics of verbs and adjectives as 'verb' and 'adjective' respectively, and questions about their syntax as 'verb-endings' and 'adjective-endings'.

There is no protocol to create any tag. As the link on Create Tags shows, you can create a tag when you have more than 150 reputation points.

How do I create a new tag?

Simply enter a new tag with your question and it will be created. When creating your new tag, bear in mind that tags ...

must be no longer than 25 characters must use the character set a-z 0-9 + # - .

What happens when a new tag is created?

The new tag will now be available for all other community members to use, without needing the new tag privilege. It will also show up in the moderator tools new tag report.

However, note that:

  • on some sites, new tags will be automatically culled and removed from the system if they are not used by at least 1 other question in a 6 month period.
  • meta tags, tags that cannot stand alone as the only tag on a question, are not allowed.

Please create new tags responsibly! (emphases mine)

Note: This question was asked before the privilege required to create tags was lower than 150.
