| Comments: |
|Amatuka||Possibly also 'verb phrase'. Must check some time.|| |
|Miki||大変 in context has meanings of "such an effort" or "difficult". || |
|9000||This use of の looks similar to use of "koto" (事) after verbs, doesn't it? Like in "話す事 が 出来る" = "I can speak".|| |
|DarrkAngel||Yes, but their uses have different rules. Koto is used for more abstract things than no.|| |
