*Japanese Word of the Day*
/saikin, e wo kaku no ni hamatterun dayone/
I'm recently hooked on painting a picture!!
*最近（さいきん） /saikin/ recently, these days
*絵（え） /e/ a drawing, a painting, a sketch, a illustration
― 絵（え）を描（か）く /e wo kaku/ to draw/paint a picture
*～にハマ（はま）っている /...ni hamatte iru/ to be hooked on, to be into
When we speak, this い is often omitted.
You may thought what の between 絵を描く and ハマってる means. It's one of the particles! It's added after a verb to change it into a noun. Sometimes we use こと instead of の. (Or, we use の instead of こと sometimes?? I'm not sure...)
◎ 絵を描く の にハマってる。
◎ 絵を描く こと にハマってる。
× 絵を描く に ハマってる。
