I'm currently studying Japanese using Genki as one of my resources. At the end of Lesson 8 for the second edition of Genki I, in a section called Expression Notes 9, the textbooks tries to explain that as many irregular verbs are just the combination of a noun and する, many of the nouns can be used as the object of a sentence.
They then go on to give two examples of this, the first set being the two sentences:
But I'm not sure I understand the nuance between these two sentences. If asked to translate the sentiment, I would've come up with the second sentence more easily, I think. Is there a slight difference between these, or is it just another way of expressing the same concept? And if so, does anyone have any more examples or recommendations on additional resources covering this topic? Thanks!
