--Another construction is to use it with negative verb--

-Replace the い with さ, then add すぎる-

Ex:
*りなさすぎる。
Too much lack of time.

-The adjectives that consist of い (e.g. もったいない, けない) will follow this construction, instead of the usual one-

Ex:
*もったいなさすぎる。
Too good/wasteful.

けなさすぎる。
Too ashamed.

いなさすぎる。
Too certain.

*りない already has the meaning "insufficient, not enough" while もったいない has "too good/wasteful or more than one deserves". Using them with ~すぎる will give much more degree to the state.

Would it just be worth combining the I and NA adjectives on this page? I got really confused and missed the "1 of 2" button up top, and was thinking that only verbs could be conjugated like this x_x

If there is a general consensus that the x of y marker is not clear enough, then it would probably be best to work on improving that instead of adjusting the data on the grammar pages one by one. Feel free to open up a thread in the Beta discussion so we can see what the other users think!

I saw on the grammar selection page that the model sentence 「ぎておなかがいたくなります。」had いたくなります highlighted as the grammar point with "ate too much." Though, it's correct on this page.

Thanks for the report - what do you mean by grammar selection page? If you post the url/web address, that'll be perfect.

http://www.renshuu.org/index.php?page=community/forum_topic&topic_id=6437 Not the original, but I can see it on this one, too. Maybe it's related? It's up where it says "Model:" with the model sentence. Edit: Page just refreshed with: 「この カレー は から すぎて [color=blue]たべられない [/color]!」 This curry [color=blue]is too spicy[/color]; I can't eat it! Maybe it's an issue with the target usage being written as すぎて? Though, in all of the examples on http://www.renshuu.org/index.php?page=grammar/individual&id=41, the highlights are correct.

Excellent points for a rarer use of the grammar! We can't put up material directly from another site into the main area of the site, but if you feel like rewriting the sentences into different examples, we can add it to the Usage notes above!
