Okay, wasn't sure if this should be posted in the Conlang Discussion Thread or here. I figured since it is a question about Japanese, really, that it should be here even though it is for conlaning purposes. Please forgive me if I was mistaken. I was thinking about starting a very small conlang with a friend they could use in small parts of a fiction they are working on, so I have been messing around with the idea since then. But they wanted some Japanese influences on the verbs and adjectives. So I picked up a cheap Japanese book at the store and looked to the verb section. I have no idea if this is a mess up the book did or not because searching it up on the internet yielded no help, so here is a quick question.
In Japanese, can a verb act as a verb and
an adjective at once in one sentence? Because the book—which if this is a mess up, I suspect is the cause of it being a locally published book—states that a verb can modify a noun and
act as a verb all at once
If so, how does this work exactly?
