Lesson 210: Nominalizing verbs using の

We can turn a verb into a noun by adding the nominalizer particle after the plain form of the verb. We can then use the verb in constructions where we normally would use a noun.

(I) like traveling by steam train. しゃりょこうするのがき。
kisya de ryokousuruno ga suki.
(I) don't like studying. べんきょうするのがきらいです。
benkyousuruno ga kirai desu.
