first what does the の in each sentence mean? If is remember correctly (according to Genki, by The Japan Times as well, it references to a noun that has already been stated or clear; also I thought that everything before the の was just qualifing it.
okay, here is my issue i know that のように is the adverbial form of のような but I have seen it used in sentences without a preceeding verb following it. So, could someone clear this up for me because even when Genki II explained this I was confused.
So, i learned sae means even and it follows a noun or dictionary form of a verb + koto, so I am very confused - please help.
simply, what is the difference between causive, passive, and causive-passive? when do I know when to use them?
