So I’ve just learned a bunch of things surrounding “big” (大), and the one in question being “great” or “big deal” (大した). I’ve also learned that “to do” is “する” and “did” or “have done” is “した”.
So the way I see it is that you are “great” or a “big deal” because you “did” or “have done” something great or important, but if I “do” great things or I’m “doing” something important it doesn’t seem like you’d say “大する” (at least I didn’t find it).
So what’s happening here, am I looking at it wrong, and how would you say “(I) do great (things)” or “(I’m) doing (something) important” in a similar/simple form?
PS: I do understand that this is above my level and I’m not looking to nail the grammar or anything like that any time soon. I just want to get a lay of the land so to speak, and get a feel for how to look at or think about the language. Being Norwegian it seems Japanese deviates a bit more than English from my native language in terms of how to look at or think about it.
