So I've changed my question in regarding these so called nominalisation and the usage of の, こと, 物。My confusion stems from what I learned or lacked from this specific website that explains about の particle.
From that source I concluded the following:
- Adj + 物 = the thing that is (adj).
- 白い物 = the thing that is white.
- 白い物は大嫌い(I dislike/hate white things).
- Verb + こと = the event of gerund(verb + ing).
- 成ること = becoming.
- 貴女が医者になることを忘れてね = just forget becoming a doctor okay?
Both 物 and こと can be replaced by の.
However, I'm extremely confused when I learned about adj + こと and verb + 物. 見た本(the book I saw) so 見た物 means the thing I saw. It seems like a relative clause. Which means 選ぶこと can mean (the event of choosing) or (the thing(abstract) that someone choose). Besides that how can I know if 選ぶの indicates ことor 物 and if it is "the thing I choose/the event of choosing"?
And the adj + こと is what really kills me.
- 私が大きい物は嫌いだ = I hate to be physically big.
- 私が楽しいことは好きだ = I like to be mentally fun.
It is as if the adjective is being the same with the subject(verb to be). I'm so confused with these, doesn't the の after verb and adj turns them into nouns?
All of the examples and information in here are just my assumptions which may or may not be wrong. Even if they are right I'm not exactly sure how it happens the way it is. So please correct me for any misinformation and misunderstanding, also fill me in the gap that I lacked upon. Truly thank you and any help will be appreciated.
