I realize that an explanation of when to use に or で must be everywhere on this site but i have a rather peculiar question on this topic.
For me alot of things in japanese atart out as "memorize this" and eventually much later actually understand whats going on.
One thing i have noticed is that the to に or で topic for me at least has been become somewhat based on logic and largely based on just memorizing whether to に or で for literally every verb i know.
The logic portion of my brain has been able to make the following deductions and i would like to know if they are actually true.
1) を particles seem to take exclusively で for locations.
2) if you cant find a way to put a を particle into the sentence then it must use the に particle.
(This statement is twofold, as i am asserting that certain particles which must use が like ある and いる must always use a ni particle.
But i am also asserting that if theres nothing to logically use the を or が particle on that the statement must use に basically im saying if the thing you would normally use を on becomes something you would use the by means of で on instead it must use に.)
Obviously there are some structures like eru or rareru that can change a を to a が and i want to exclude all those cases from my above statements.
It is of course impossible for both my assumtions to be true. I know they cannot be because its incredibly straight forward and simple; and i have read many textbooks and articles on the subject and the best of them can only be described as an pathetic attempt to sort of maybe kinda think about almost trying to explaining something with any attempt at being definitive.
So my questions are when do you need to use に with the を particle?
Secondly when must you use で with a verb that can only use the particle が. Things such as conjugations that change を particles to が dont count. As well as verbs who you can interchange を and が to emphasized the noun are also off limits.
Although i doubt this will complely answer my question of when to に or when to で. I feel it may allow me to reduce it to a problem of "is it possible that i could replace that が particle with a を particle and not drastically alter the sentence's meaning." It would at least be a vast improvement over memorizing every fking verbs particle.
