In Tobira Chapter 13 Grammar; one of the examples is 彼は20代で会社を作り、30代で、大金持ちになった。

What is 作り? What is the form of this verb? I cannot find anything on the web. It is a infinitive form of 作る? How can you use infinite form in a sentence?

  • You should be able to find something about 作り. As a hint: this is a conjugation of the verb 作【つく】る. Please try looking that up and if you're still confused, please come back and edit your question post here to specifically ask what it is that you find confusing. :) Feb 14, 2023 at 0:49
