助詞「の」. Genitive case particle showing relationships between two nouns, such as possession. Also used for apposition (同格), to indicate subjects in relative clauses, and as a nominalizing particle (準体助詞).

Genitive case is the grammatical case that marks a noun as modifying another noun. A genitive construction involves two nouns - the head (modified) noun and the modifier noun. The modifier noun modifies the head noun by expressing some property of it.

A nominaliser is usually an affixed morpheme or a particle, that changes another part of speech into a noun or a noun phrase.
