@ Tess,

If I may be so bold as to help... I asked my Japanese friend about this type of example and the answer is that "tokoro da" indicates "is about to".


E.G.:

Benkyou shite iru. Studying.

Benkyou suru tokoro da. About to study.


The use of tokoro da uses the short form of the verb just before it.


:wink:

Just wondering if you could explain the reasoning (or rules) behind "Sono onna no hito wa mokuhyล o tassei suru tokoro da". Why isn't it: Sono onna no hito wa

mokuhyล o tassei shite iru? Thanks.
