View topic - koto and -te iru
When you say a verb into an adjective, do you mean something like this?
# Dark billowing clouds often precede a storm.
# Racing cars can go as fast as 400kph.
# He was trapped inside the burning house.
# Many of his paintings depict the setting sun.
When you use a verb like this, you have the verb and then the noun that it modifies directly afterwards. for example.
沈んでいる日 - setting sun - Sinking + sun
燃えている家 - burning house - burning + house
but it doesn:t have to be in present form
死んだ猫 - dead cat - past form
ゾンビーに食べられた脳みそ - brains eaten by a zombie - passive past form
Hope that helps.
Yes that is what I mean, so it just put the verb before the noun or add -teiru to the verb then put the noun after?
