I'm having trouble understanding a translation I've encountered in Makino and Tsutsui's Dictionary of Intermediate Japanese grammar, under とする1.
The original sentence is as follows:
Which the textbook translates into:
I have no objection to regarding Kazuo as our adopted son.
According to the dictionaries, 依存 can only assume the meaning of "dependence", not "objection".
dependence; dependent; reliance
Which should make the original sentence, given the lack of any context, translate into something like this:
There is no dependence on regarding Kazuo as (our) adopted child. (???)
The meaning of this sentence is unclear, although it would have probably made more sense given the broader context that I don't have.
My question is whether it is possible for 依存 to be interpreted as "objection" in this (or any other) sentence and why.
