的 [de] is such a widely used auxiliary word; it appears everywhere in Chinese news articles, as well as in daily speech. Native speakers of every language rely almost entirely on their own habits for order in their speech, and therefore never need to think of explicit rules of grammar, such as the title of this article mentions. But, for people who learn Chinese as a foreign language, learning (and consciously remembering) grammar rules is a necessity.

It would be useful to know, when 的 can be omitted.  For example: 我的妈妈 = 我妈妈;高的个子=高个子 ;等等

It would be very useful to include Pinyin as well as Chinese characters.

Doing this would make the article useful to many more students.

Without the pinyin many beginers, like me, cannot read any of the examples. This makes the article, while still interesting, almost useless.
