How to simply say "and" in Japanese, to coordinate two actions?
My question is divided into two sub-questions: coordination inside one sentence, and coordination between two sentences.
- Coordination inside one sentence
For instance :
(1) I like to cook and to swim.
(2) Today, I went to the park and I studied in the library.
For (1), machine translation systems systematically give a sentence with the nominalization of the action words, linked by と.
For (2), these same MT systems systematically use the "て" form of one of the action verbs.
But I would like to make a sentence like : Pronoun + する + conjunction + する
Is there such a conjunction, and such a sentence pattern in Japanese?
- Coordination between two sentences
What would be the grammatical word to coordinate two sentences such as:
I went to the park. Additionally, I studied in the library.
N.b.: Of course, the machine translation output are simply given as illustrations. Indeed, I did not encounter such kind of conjunction and sentence pattern in my (beginner/intermediate) practice of Japanese.
