This usage of て is kind of a more limited form of ので/から.

Don't use it for consequences that are in the past or future.

Ex:
めて、りました。------- Awkward
めたので、りました。------- Better

Use it for consequences that occur simultaneously with the reason.

Ex:
くて、えません。------- The fog is thick, so I can't see the road.

Maybe you should add "A, and then B" or "A, and so B" (the first one possibly as a separate usage) since this is so often used just to say that something happened, and then another thing happened, without necessarily having the connotation of "because".

Also used when describing something with more than one adjective, as one user example shows!

In the first usage, I think you should add an example of the non-negative て-form. The way it is now is confusing. Also, I was tought that you could end a て form sequence with the formal form, is that incorrect?

We are working to expand the examples out on the entire grammar library :). When you say formal form, could you give me a short example?

You have it listed as "Since A, as A." Shouldn't be like "Since A, B"?

With that particular construction, I didn't add the B part, so it is left as just A :)

maybe it's confusing with commas - what if you separated the meanings with semicolons instead so if there's a comma within one definition, it won't be taken as multiples?

I'm just seeing the semicolon after the first definition: "Since A; As A, A, then B, A and B" I was saying between each definition: "Since A; As A; A, then B; A and B" - would separate the one usage that actually does use a comma (A, then B) without making it seem like a random B occurrence or something.

Thanks guys I am sorry but it just was a little confusing to me that there were two definitions in the title. The Semicolon idea was great Mystic and great job with the quick fix マイコー

that makes the English teacher in me much happier ;) ... can that be put on all grammar pages between each usage? (ok that's probably way too much manual labor to appease one grammar nazi...)

There's one more exception for the て form: いい (good) becomes よくて.

I recently saw the usage "れてのになります” ("The attendance will be late," or "I'll be late.")


Can someone explain the usage of "~ての~

The て in れて makes it a gerund; のhere is an attributive "The being late of attendance will come to be." or in smoother English, "Attendance will be delayed."
