comment Understanding Japanese verbs
This confusion might have been caused by looking up "cooking", "painting", etc. Try looking up the infinitive "to cook", "to paint", since that's how verbs are listed in dictionaries.

comment The に particle outside of location and direction
@snailplane Thanks for the pointer! The textbooks I have been using so far (Tae Kim, Busy People, Manga Way) have often used awkward phrasing like "the direction/target the action is directed at" (sounds more like the direct object), I can't remember having read the phrase "indirect object"

comment The に particle outside of location and direction
Thanks for explaining it this way! I always suspected it to be like this, but so far haven't found confirmation that に can act as the indirect object marker.

comment Using negative verb forms with はず
Thanks! I wish I could mark two answers, because Tim's is also great. I decided on this one - the truth table won me over :-)

comment How to read this kanji? (see image)
@HatoruHansou If you're not sure about the stroke count, on jisho.org you can also use the kanji's parts/radicals to look it up
