Yesterday I learnt about verb + ところ, meaning about to do something. For example:
About to cook food
Today I saw a sentence like this:
I'm not sure if it translates to "start from about to know the issue", because that sounds a bit weird to me. If doesn't, what does the ところ in the sentence above mean?
Furthermore, do the first example
料理を作るところです or other verb + ところ(です) constructs ever mean something other than "about to do [something]"? How do I differentiate?
