comment 君に話しがある How does this work?
Target particle means it is a particle which shows where the action or object or whatever is aimed at. I get what it is supposed to translate as, what I don't understand is how に is being used. It places the story with 君 because it is saying Xにある means it exists at X.

comment Strange usage of に particle
Thanks so much Chocalate! Great examples. It seems to me like に is a target particle here after all since it seems で has the nuance of YOU being in the location doing the action whereas に seems to just be the result of the action without you necessarily being there. For example: 自分の部屋に(notで)テレビが欲しい It makes sense that it would be に because you aren't "wanting" IN your room (Doing the action of wanting in your room) but instead, you want it to BE in your room. So 世界中に友達を作りたい means that you want to make friends in the world as a result! Therefore 世界中に料理を食べたい is not ok because no result.

comment Strange usage of に particle
世界に友達がいる is the standard usage of に and has nothing to do with my question. I want to know if you can say 世界に料理を食べたい or 大学に友達を作りたい. Before this advertisement I would have said no but now I am forced to say it is a possibility. It isn't taught or written in books, yet it exists, so I can't say anything is right or wrong with any authority anymore. That's why I am asking. Furthermore is 世界で友達を作りたい wrong. Who knows? I want to know what is going on haha.

comment Strange usage of に particle
That's not a problem :) However, do you think you could give me a few more examples of such に particle usage where instead of the normal で you say に?

comment Strange usage of に particle
The problem is I have never been taught this. It's not in any book. So if possible could you please backup your claim or refer me to grammar dot point or anything like that. "Sounds to me like" doesn't really help because I also get feelings from this sentence akin to yours... but I can't apply these feelings to any other sentence because I have this information with no authority or explanation as to how it fits in with the language. I understand there is no concise explanation as to WHY grammar points are as they are, but surely there is an explanation of HOW to use them.

comment Why is it である not にある in this sentence?
I figured as much that that was the case, however there are a few questions still unanswered such as, can it become 'です" is rearranged like I wrote in my question. Also, how would you differentiate the である that shows what something is and the である that shows where something is.
