  • It doesnt' answer your question, but maybe you confusion comes from 者{もの}, that can refer to a person. – Gumamori Jun 12 '18 at 15:55
  • Don't worry @Gumamori it's solved, I didn't read correctly the sentences and I thought that [大勢の人を使いこなす] was an example of the first sentence but it is not the case. Though the first sentence is a little bit misleading according to me because it is supposed to give the complete meaning of the verb 使いこなす but gives only 物 as a possible object of the verb. – Jirei Jun 12 '18 at 16:35

No. 物 can't mean a human. It explains 使いこなす and 大勢の人を使いこなす individually.

    でも、「物を使いこなす」と「人を使いこなす」を別々に説明してはいませんよね.・・・ 最初に「使いこなす」は「*物*を・・・使う意」としておきながら、次の文で「大勢の人を使いこなす」というように物ではなく人を目的語にしていますから、「物」が人を指すものとして使えないのであれば、最初の説明と矛盾しているように思われるのではないでしょうか。 – goldbrick Jun 13 '18 at 5:00
  • 厳密にいえば、「使いこなす」と 「大勢の人を使いこなす」ですね。 – Yuuichi Tam Jun 13 '18 at 6:55
