What are Extreme Adjectives? – Free English Grammar Lesson Link to quiz : http://www.learnex.in/what-are-extreme-adjectives/ Adjectives are words that describe the qualities of something. Some adjectives in English are gradable - that means you can have different degrees or levels of that quality. For example, the weather can be a little cold, rather cold, very cold, or extremely cold. Extreme adjectives or non-gradable adjectives are words that mean “extremely + adjective” – for example, “freezing” means “extremely cold.” The weather can’t be “a little bit freezing” or “very freezing” – because the word “freezing” itself automatically means “extremely cold.” Regular & Extreme Adjectives List Regular Adjective Extreme Adjective angry furious bad awful, terrible, horrible big huge, gigantic, giant clean spotless cold freezing crowded packed dirty filthy funny hilarious good wonderful, fantastic, excellent hot boiling hungry starving interesting fascinating old ancient pretty gorgeous scary terrifying small tiny surprising astounding tired exhausted ugly hideous Special Rules for Extreme Adjectives 1) No comparatives/superlatives. With regular adjectives, we can use comparatives and superlatives to compare two or more things:  My house is big.  My neighbor’s house is bigger than mine. (comparative)  My parents’ house is the biggest house on the street. (superlative) With extreme adjectives, we don’t use comparatives and superlatives:  My parents’ house is enormous.  My parents’ house is more enormous / the most enormous. 2) Use different adverbs with extreme adjectives. With regular adjectives, we can use these adverbs:  a little, a bit, slightly, fairly, rather  very, extremely, immensely, intensely, hugely Examples:  I’m rather hungry. / I’m very hungry.  This room is a bit dirty. / This room is extremely dirty.  We’re a little tired. / We’re immensely tired. With extreme adjectives, we CANNOT use these adverbs:  I’m rather starving. / I’m extremely starving. However, there are other adverbs we can use to give additional emphasis to the extreme adjective:  absolutely  completely  utterly Examples:  I’m absolutely furious.  We’re completely exhausted.  The movie was utterly terrifying. The words pretty and really can be used with both regular and extreme adjectives:  This room is pretty dirty. (regular)  This room is pretty filthy. (extreme)  The party is really crowded. (regular)  The party is really packed. (extreme)  Absolute Adjectives Another type of extreme adjective is called an “absolute” adjective. These are words that are either “yes or no.” For example, dead – you can’t be “a little bit dead” or “very dead” – either YES, you are dead, or NO, you’re not dead.

In other words, "hilarious" means "very funny". In most cases, it is not necessary to use "very" with extreme adjectives e.g. "This movie's very hilarious", sounds a little strange because "hilarious" is a strong enough word that doesn't require "very" to add extra strength.

English Vocabulary: 10 adjectives invented by Shakespeare
 
12:44
Did you know that William Shakespeare added more than 2000 words to the English language? That's right! In this lesson, we'll look at 10 adjectives that were invented by Shakespeare. You'll learn the meaning of each of the words and how to pronounce them correctly. Often, Shakespeare invented these words by turning nouns into adjectives. Many of the words may have been used in English already, but Shakespeare was the first to put them down, and that's how they grew to become parts of the language that are still with us today. Native English speakers use this vocabulary in everyday speech and in writing. This lesson has excellent advanced vocabulary that you'll learn easily because you'll get the definitions and examples, and I'll tell you the most common contexts you'll hear these words in. To continue learning with Shakespeare, sign up for a free trial with Audible at http://www.engvid.com/out/audiblealex and you'll be able to download a FREE audiobook of one of Shakespeare's plays. Take the quiz on this lesson here: http://www.engvid.com/english-vocabulary-10-adjectives-invented-by-shakespeare/ TRANSCRIPT Shake, shake, shake. Shake, shake, shake. William Shakespeare. William Shakespeare. Ow! Hey, everyone. I'm Alex. Thanks for clicking, and welcome to this lesson on learning English with William Shakespeare. Today, we are going to look at some vocabulary, specifically, some adjectives that are credited to William Shakespeare. Now, if you've been living under a rock, maybe you don't know that William Shakespeare is one of the most famous English playwrights and writers in general. He has almost 2,000 words that are credited to him. This doesn't mean the words didn't exist before him, but it is definitely the first time that people saw them in print. So, today, we are going to look at 10 adjectives. Now, what was cool about William Shakespeare is that he would take verbs, he would take nouns, and he would just mash them together. And if a word, you know, didn't exist that he needed that he really felt would make the scene that was necessary for the dialogue, he created it. So, what we're going to do is look at some of those words now. Let me put my book down, and we can begin. Okay, number one: "lackluster". So, this will also be a pronunciation lesson for you guys. Repeat after me: "lackluster". Okay. "Lackluster" means something is without vitality, without brilliance, or without spirit or life. So, a movie can be lackluster, a performance in a movie can be lackluster, or on stage. An experience can be lackluster, or a presentation can be lackluster. Many other things can be lackluster, but these are some common examples. And again, the examples I will give you today will be the most common ones that are associated with these adjectives. So, you can say: -"How was the movie?" -"Mm, it was lackluster." Okay? It didn't have enough light or life to it. "How was the performance?" if you go to see a stage play, a Cirque du Soleil. Cirque du Soleil is never lackluster, but imagine, you know, maybe the performers on that day, they were all sick, and there were lots of accidents. That might be entertaining, but anyway, you can say: "It was lackluster." There wasn't enough vitality, enough spirit, enough life in it. Next: "cold-blooded", so you see the word "cold", you see the word "blood", Shakespeare took the word "blood" and added "ed" to it, and basically turned a noun, "blood", into an adjective. "Cold-blooded". "Cold-blooded" means without emotion. So, a killer, a criminal, a murderer, or a villain. A villain is the opposite of a hero. Now, you might think: "When am I ever going to use this word?" Well, this word is very common in crime dramas, like CSI or like Law & Order, or in movies where there are killers and murderers. A very happy topic. It's why I'm wearing all black today. So, next, we have "worthless". "Worthless" means without value; zero, nada, zilch. Okay? If something is worthless, it has no value. An object can be worthless. An effort to do something can be worthless. An idea, you might say, is worthless. It can't be used. It has no use. So, for example, I have a rock, and this rock has no value. And we say the rock is worthless. Or if you're in a fight and in the fight you have a feather... Does...? You know, does a feather have any use in a fight? Say: "No, this is worthless. I can't use this to fight", unless it's a very sharp feather, maybe. Next: "tranquil". Now, "tranquil" means-breathe-peaceful, calm, serene. Okay? So, a place, usually, we say is tranquil. An experience or a feeling that you have can be tranquil as well. So, if I go to, you know, a place to meditate on top of a mountain and I am at peace with everything, the mood is tranquil. Okay? This is also where we get tranquilizer darts-right?-that make someone just fall down, and be calm, and fall asleep. So, that's "tranquil".

English Grammar lesson - Adjectives comparing equal quantities ( Learn free English)
 
10:23
English Grammar lesson - Adjectives comparing equal quantities ( Learn free English) Quiz - http://www.learnex.in/adjectives-used-while-comparing-equal-quantities In this English Grammar lesson, you’re going to learn about adjectives comparing equal quantities with countable and uncountable nouns. Follow the pattern ‘as+ (adjective indicating quantity) + noun + as’ when using adjectives to express equal quantities. Website : http://www.letstalkpodcast.com Facebook : http://www.facebook.com/letstalkpodcast When we use an adjective to compare countable nouns, we use ‘as many as’ or ‘as few as’ because ‘many’and ‘few’ are adjectives that are used for countable nouns. Use this pattern: as+ (adjective indicating quantity) + noun + as Example 1: They have as many children as we do. (using ‘as much children as’ would be incorrect as ‘children’ is a countable noun and so ‘many’ is used.) Example 2: John has a few books as Jane. (‘few’ is and adjective used for the countable noun ‘book’ in this sentence) Example 3: They have as many customers as we do. Example 4: I have 3 sisters. That’s as many as you have. When we use an adjective to compare uncountable nouns, we use ‘as much as’ or ‘as little as’ because ‘much’ and ‘little’ are adjectives that are used for uncountable nouns. Example 1: John eats as much food as Peter. (‘food’ is an uncountable noun as so ‘much’ is used to compare quantity.) Example 2: She has as little patience as me. Example 3: They’ve got as little water as we have. Example 4: I’m not hungry. I’ve had as much as she has.

Subscribe for more! ► https://www.youtube.com/c/InfoBytee Follow our Facebook ► https://www.facebook.com/InfoByteee Description Stupidity is a lack of intelligence, understanding, reason, wit or sense. Stupidity may be innate, assumed or reactive – a defence against grief or trauma. Etymology The root word stupid, which can serve as an adjective or noun, comes from the Latin verb stupere, for being numb or astonished, and is related to stupor. In Roman culture, the stupidus was the professional fall-guy in the theatrical mimes. According to the online Merriam-Webster dictionary, the words "stupid" and "stupidity" entered the English language in 1541. Since then, stupidity has taken place along with "fool," "idiot," "dumb," "moron," and related concepts as a pejorative appellation for human misdeeds, whether purposeful or accidental, due to absence of mental capacity. Definition Stupidity is a quality or state of being stupid, or an act or idea that exhibits properties of being stupid. In a character study of "The Stupid Man" attributed to the Greek philosopher Theophrastus (c. 371 – c. 287 BC), stupidity was defined as "mental slowness in speech or action". The modern English word "stupid" has a broad range of application, from being slow of mind (indicating a lack of intelligence, care or reason), dullness of feeling or sensation (torpidity, senseless, insensitivity), or lacking interest or point (vexing, exasperating). It can either imply a congenital lack of capacity for reasoning, or a temporary state of daze, or slow-mindedness. In Understanding Stupidity, James F. Welles defines stupidity this way: "The term may be used to designate a mentality which is considered to be informed, deliberate and maladaptive." Welles distinguishes stupidity from ignorance; one must know they are acting in their own worst interest. Secondly, it must be a choice, not a forced act or accident. Lastly, it requires the activity to be maladaptive, in that it is in the worst interest of the actor, and specifically done to prevent adaption to new data or existing circumstances." Laws of Stupidity Carlo Maria Cipolla, an economic historian, is famous for his essays about human stupidity, such as "The Basic Laws of Human Stupidity". He viewed stupid people as a group, more powerful by far than major organizations such as the Mafia and the industrial complex, which without regulations, leaders or manifesto nonetheless manages to operate to great effect and with incredible coordination. These are Cipolla's five fundamental laws of stupidity: 1) Always and inevitably each of us underestimates the number of stupid individuals in circulation. 2) The probability that a given person is stupid is independent of any other characteristic possessed by that person. 3) A person is stupid if they cause damage to another person or group of people without experiencing personal gain, or even worse causing damage to themselves in the process. 4) Non-stupid people always underestimate the harmful potential of stupid people; they constantly forget that at any time anywhere, and in any circumstance, dealing with or associating themselves with stupid individuals invariably constitutes a costly error. 5) A stupid person is the most dangerous type of person there is.

2018 Apple Keynote but only in adjectives
 
02:17
NOTE: I missed the "Incredible" count! New Total: 129 Adjectives for the 2018 Keynote. As requested, I made a video comparing the recent September 2018 Apple keynote to the 2010 keynote. Using only adjectives. It seemed like there were a lot of buzzwords being thrown around, and I wanted to do an in-depth comparison between past adjective use and current. Don't get me wrong, I'm a huge Apple fan, and I can't wait ti upgrade, I'm just making a funny observation. I chose the most frequently used words from both Steve Job’s keynote and Tim Cook’s. I left out the iPhone Xr because the 2010 keynote did not feature an additional iPhone and thus would skew the stats. I compared the iPhone 4’s keynote to the Xs’s because it seemed the most fair being the 4 was a successor phone. I didn’t want to compare a refresh launch to a brand new product launch. For the 2010 keynote, I complied clips starting from 29:30-1:37:40 so 68ish minutes. For the 2018 keynote, I Only took clips from 37:00 - 1:26:26 so 49ish minutes. The 2010 Keynote would have the higher probability of containing adjectives, not the 2018 keynote. The iPhone Xs and Xs Max were not demonstrated as much as the iPhone 4 was. 2010 Keynote demonstrated the new iPhone’s features, 2018 keynote talked the phone up. There are some words that I left out of the comparison because they were difficult to label as unnecessary adjectives (great, cool, nice, etc.) I highly recommend watching these keynotes beside each other. They contain vastly different presentation styles. 2010 iPhone 4 keynote: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AmXc1Mjr5J4 2018 iPhone Xs Keynote: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wFTmQ27S7OQ Follow me on instagram and Reddit: @jamesmatchubrown u/leapfork

Test your vocabulary with the quiz at https://www.engvid.com/improve-your-vocabulary-50-sense-adjectives TRANSCRIPT Hi there. Welcome back to engVid with me, Benjamin. In today's lesson you are going to learn or revise 50 fantastic words that will help bring your language to life. Yes, we are going to be describing through the senses, so this will just make your language and your conversation more dynamic, more interesting as your listener starts to imagine your words more clearly. We're going to start off with the sense of smell, sometimes called the olfactory sense. How can I talk about it? You could use a phrase such as: "The smell of..." Okay? "The smell of something was..." The smell was terrible, disgusting, fantastic, duh-duh-duh. "It smelt of..." What did it remind you of? "It smelt of old fish", "It smelt like a kebab shop", I don't know. Let's look at some adjectives that you could use connected with smell. "Acrid", okay? Meaning bitter. "Had an acrid smell." Okay? So this is quite an unusual word, here. Okay, think sort of lemons, things like that, but even more powerful. "A pungent smell". "Pungent", probably not going to be used in a good way. A pungent smell is one that sort of takes you by surprise in a quite unpleasant manner. "Foul", again, a word that is going to suggest a bad smell. A foul, a disgusting smell. "A foul stench." That's another good word to use. So, "a stench" is a really strong smell. "Fragrant". You can probably spot the word "fragrance", so this is, you know, aftershave, perfumed, they are all fragrances. "Fragrant", there, the adjective. This is more pleasant. This is a nice smell. "A fragrant smell of summer flowers." Okay? It's quite innocent. "Fresh", so we're thinking straight out the shower, a fresh smell. This is something that goes: "Oo, yes, I feel alive and awake." And awake. "This fresh smell makes me feel like I'm walking through fields." Okay? It's one that sort of wakes you up. "Musty", quite the opposite with musty. This is to do with mould. So it's something that's been lying in a cupboard for a very long time, maybe it's got holes in because it's been eaten by moths. Yes? A very old, musty smell. "Noxious", now, this is often connected with chemicals, so it's a smell that you don't want to smell because you know that maybe it's a pollutant, it's quite dangerous. "A noxious smell". "Rancid", great word, "rancid", again, meaning disgusting. Horrifically awful smell. "Sharp", quite similar to this word "acrid" here, a sharp smell, it's one that... It's not particularly nice, but it catches you by surprise. And then a "sweet" smell is one that's nice. "Mmm, the sweet smell of momma's home cooking." Okay, on to sound. The clash of drums-dee-dee-dee-dee-can't stop thinking of Joseph and his... The Amazing Technicoloured Dreamcoat. Technicolour Dreamcoat, so that's going to be to do with sight, isn't it? More of that in a moment. Sound, how do we talk about sound? "The sound of the trumpet", "It sounded like a full choir in good voice." Right. "Blare", so this is like a... Kind of a wall of sound. "The blare of traffic made the man feel sad." Yeah. "The blare of traffic", the blare, so as I said, like a wall of sound. "Chime", we think of bells, chiming. Church bells chiming, kind of ringing. "Chirp", this is a sound that perhaps a bird would make. Chirping away. "Chirp. Chirp. Chirp. Chirp". "Chuckle", this is to do with laughter. "The chuckle of laughter", "The chuckle after the joke lasted a long time", "He chuckled." So, there it's a noun: "a chuckle", but you can also use it as a verb: "to chuckle". "Clash", we're thinking of drums, here. "The clash of the drum." Okay? We imagine that hi-hat going: "Ptch". "A clash of drums", okay? But also you can use this word to mean to fall out with someone, to argue. If you clash personalities it means they... You know, you don't get along well with someone. "Crunch", I think of food with this word. "The crunch of crisp toast", "He crunched into his breakfast cereal." Or maybe you're walking on gravel: "The crunch of gravel underneath him." So it's sort of a... Imagine things sort of going together. "Crunch, crunch." Okay? "Howl", maybe a dog or a wolf is going: "Owwww." Okay? So it's slightly onomatopoeic; the sound and the meaning are quite close together. […]
GRADABLE AND NON-GRADABLE ADJECTIVES | English with GRAMMAR MAN
 
13:39
The focus of today’s lesson is on how to correctly use adjectives with modifiers, and I’m also going to help you to expand your descriptive vocabulary. There are two types of adjectives. We have gradable, and non-gradable adjectives. Some common examples of gradable adjectives include: old, small, big, hungry, beautiful, embarrassed, etc. Some common non-gradable adjectives, include: ancient, enormous, gorgeous/stunning, thrilled, terrified, delicious, etc. All that gradable/un-gradable means is that gradable adjectives can be measured, we can say how cold, or how tall, or how hot something is. He is quite tall, he is very tall, he is extremely tall. We can change the level of tallness by adding certain modifying words, the most common include the following: a bit/slightly, quite/rather/fairly, very/really, extremely, incredibly With non-gradable adjectives, we cannot modify in the same way. We cannot change the level. We can’t change the degree of the adjective. We cannot say something is a little bit enormous, or very enormous, or extremely enormous. We can add emphasis, and say it is absolutely enormous, but we can’t answer the question ‘how enormous is it’. There isn’t a range. The way we modify these non-gradable adjectives is we can add emphasis using these common adverbs here: absolutely, completely, totally, utterly, really, exceptionally, etc. So, for example, you might say: This rock is really ancient, or This cake is absolutely delicious, or she is utterly terrified of snakes. ******Grammar man offers FREE ENGLISH LESSONS monthly to students from around the world via SKYPE.

Learn English Vocabulary: Compound Adjectives to describe people
 
12:02
http://www.engvid.com/ Do you know what a 'compound adjective' is? In today's lesson, I will teach you some very common compound adjectives to describe people. Native speakers use these expressions a lot in everyday conversation. Knowing these compound adjectives will help you understand spoken English, and will help you to speak English more fluently. Make sure you understood the lesson by taking the quiz. Good luck! http://www.engvid.com/english-vocabulary-compound-adjectives/ TRANSCRIPT Hi, there. My name is Emma, and in today's video, I am going to teach you some new words. These words are all compound adjectives. So what is a compound adjective? Well, a compound adjective is when you have two different words together with a hyphen. English is full of compound adjectives. I'm going to teach you maybe eight compound adjectives that all have to do with people's personalities. So if you're describing a friend, a roommate, your family, these are the types of words you can use. So let's get started The first word I want to teach you is "open-minded", okay? "Open-minded". Students have a lot of trouble with the pronunciation of this word. Many students say, "I have" or "I am open-mind"; "I am open-mind." No. You need "open-minded", -ED. Students always forget the "-ED" at the end. So be aware. Be careful. What does it mean to be "open-minded"? If you are open-minded, it means you like to try new things. When something happens, when you have an opportunity to try something new, you will do it. You're a "yes person". If somebody says, "Do you want to eat a spider?" Well, this might be extreme. But in some cultures, they eat spiders. They might ask you, "Do you want to eat a spider?" If you're open-minded, you'll say, "Sure. Yeah. Let's try it." You know, that's a little extreme. There are other cases of being open-minded. Here's another example. "I try to eat the local food because I'm open-minded." Okay? So you like to try new things. You are open-minded. Maybe you have never been outside of your country. If you go to a new country, maybe you'll notice there are differences in the culture. If these differences aren't upsetting to you, if you're willing to meet new people, try new things, learn new ways of living, you are "open-minded". The opposite of "open-minded" -- just like you open a door -- "closed", "closed-minded". So be careful with the pronunciation of this. "Closed-minded." So it's not close-ed-minded". "Closed-minded." If you are "closed-minded", you don't like to try new things. Trying new things is very uncomfortable for you. So for example -- or thinking in new ways. You don't want to change the way you live. You don't want to think in new ways. You're very traditional, and you don't like change. You are "closed-minded". "My mother won't try anything new. She is closed-minded." Okay? So if somebody doesn't want to change, is very uncomfortable with other cultures, other ideas, they are "closed-minded". Another "minded" compound adjective, "absent-minded". "Absent" -- you might have heard this word before. If you are not in class, you are "absent"; the teacher will mark you absent. Okay? So when you're absent, you're not there. "Absent-minded" is when your brain is not there. What does this mean? Well, it means you are thinking about something different, so you don't see what's happening. Here's an example to help you understand. I have a friend. My friend, her name is Lara. She is very absent-minded. She's always thinking about boys. Always thinking about her boyfriend, boy troubles. So because of that, sometimes, she forgets to do her homework. She's too busy thinking about one thing. She doesn't realize what's happening around her. She is "absent-minded". So, "Lara is absent-minded. She forgot to do her homework." So you're not thinking about something. You're absent-minded. Your mind is elsewhere. Another expression, very common expression, "laid-back". "Laid-back." What does it mean to be "laid-back"? Well, this is a very positive expression. It's a good expression. And it means you're a very relaxed person; you don't get angry; you don't get annoyed; you're very calm, relaxed, you go with the flow. You're a very happy, laid-back person. For example, I told you my friend Lara, she's very absent-minded. She's always forgetting to do her homework because she thinks too much about boys. Well, her teacher is a very laid-back teacher. When she doesn't do her homework, her teacher does not get angry. He does not yell at her and say, "Lara, why didn't you do your homework?" No. He's laid-back. He says, "Oh, it's okay. That's fine. It's okay that you didn't do your homework." He doesn't the get angry. He is laid-back. So let's look at some more compound adjectives.

Join Marjorie and I as we study English adjectives. Don't forget to read the notes below. See you in class! ***** Official Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/canguroenglish/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/canguroenglish/ ***** Become a patron and sponsor free English education here: https://www.patreon.com/canguroenglish ***** Adjectives describe nouns, so instead of saying the man we can say the tall intelligent Spanish man. Adjectives are probably one of the most exciting things in English. They make our language more rich and interesting, and help us to describe the world around us in more detail. ADJECTIVE POSITIONING Normally in English the adjective is before the noun. They live in a modern house Have you ever met any famous people? Note that in English adjectives only have one form and we never pluralise our adjectives. They are the same if we are describing a singular or plural noun. We can also use adjectives after verbs, be, get, become, seem, feel, look, smell, and sound. For example; Be quiet! The book became very boring His girlfriend seems happy You look quite tired Your kitchen smells amazing! But remember that even though the adjective is coming after the verb, we are always describing the subject of the sentence, and not the verb. ADJECTIVE ORDER When we use more than one adjective we need to put them in the correct order. Native speakers do this without even thinking, but it takes practice. The first rule is that we put opinion before fact adjectives. Opinions are our personal views, and facts are truths. The second rule is that when we use more than one adjective to describe something we put them in a specific order. Note that we do not use and between adjectives, except with colours; A short red skirt (not a short and red skirt) A white and red skirt (not a white red skirt) Unfortunately is it very difficult to memorise the order, and not everyone agrees about the rules either! The best way to learn is by listening and reading English as much as possible. -ING AND -ED ENDINGS A lot of English adjectives end in either -ing and -ed. For example; boring/bored interesting/interested depressing/depressed The difference is that the -ing adjective is the cause of the -ed adjective. Or you could also say the -ed adjective is the result of the -ing adjective. For example; My class is boring, so I am bored (The class makes me bored) I am boring, so my class is bored (I make the class bored) Now you are ready for the activities! Let's go! GRADABLE AND NON-GRADABLE ADJECTIVES If an adjective is gradable it means it can be used with grading adverbs like very to describe the degree of the adjective, for example; They were extremely angry It was slightly busy Non-gradable adjectives cannot be used in this way because it is only possible to have one degree of them, but we can use a non-grading adverb instead, for example; It was totally unknown (not very unknown) The job is almost impossible (not very impossible) Some adjectives are both gradable and non-gradable, mainly when they are homonyms. This means that they are spelt and pronounced the same, but have different meanings, for example; My dog is very old (aged) I saw an old friend yesterday (from the past) NOUN/VERB + Y = ADJECTIVE A little trick that English speakers use all the time is to transform a noun or verb into an adjective by adding a Y. For example; salt - salty fruit - fruity sun - sunny But they can also be ridiculous inventions, such as: yellow - yellowy spanish - spanishy hate - hatey These are very informal adjectives, but can be very useful to describe things that don't have formal adjective in English. For example, how could you say that your favourite new band sounds a bit like Queen? That new band is very Queeny COMPOUND ADJECTIVES Sometimes a single adjective can consist of more than one word joined with hyphens, for example; A Spanish-speaking country He is 25-year-old man They are well-known artists Post-positive adjectives There are some rare cases in English where we use the adjective after the noun. This is called a post-positive adjective. There are two reasons for this; When it is a set phrase When the adjective describes a temporary rather than permanent state In the first case, we have a lot of set phrases, some of which have been borrowed from other languages, for example; agent provocateur eggs Benedict passer-by persona non grata In the second case, we may need to put the adjective after the noun to avoid confusion. For example; I'm looking for the responsible nurse I'm looking for the nurse responsible In the first example the person is looking for the nurse that has a responsable character, a permanent and inherent characteristic of that nurse. In the second example the person is looking for the nurse responsible for a specific action, which is not a permanent characteristic of that person.

Idioms to describe people and their personality type - English Grammar lesson

Idioms to describe people and their personality type - English Grammar lesson Blog : http://www.learnex.in/spoken-english-lesson-idioms-to-describe-people In today’s Spoken English lesson we are learning idioms that can be used to describe people. When you think of your folks, friends and colleagues, you come across individuals with different personality traits or character. These characters are very different from each other and is the unique differentiating factor through which we are identified. Website : http://www.letstalkpodcast.com Facebook Fan Page : http://www.facebook.com/letstalkpodcast My challenge for you today is to watch the complete English lesson and choose one of the idioms for yourself and leave me in the comments the idiom that best describes you. I’m really excited to read the idiom you choose for yourself  DAREDEVIL A daredevil is a person who takes unnecessary risks and does extremely dangerous activities just to seek attention. Example : John’s daredevil stunts with the skate board are sure to end in a disaster someday. CRYBABY This idiom is specifically used for adults who always complain for very little things in life. Their complaints are for no reasons and they sometimes even cry about it. Example : When Michelle’s brother complained about the train being late, she told him not to be a crybaby. CHEAPSTAKE People who probably have a lot of money but are very careful while spending their money or they don’t spent it freely can be called as cheapstake. You could also call such a person ‘Stingy’. In other words they avoid spending money to an extreme degree. Example : William is such a cheapstake, he always buys clothes at a sale and sees how he could further discount them. BARREL OF LAUGH You could call someone a barrel of laugh, who is very funny and makes you laugh all the time with their funny jokes for every situation. Over years the meaning of this idiom has changed and could be also used for people who have an annoying sense of humor. Example – This replica of the board game on mobile is a barrel of laughs. ODDBALL When you cannot predict what some people might just do or say, you could call them as an ‘Oddball’ Example : My manager always has some oddball ideas at the meeting. TROUBLEMAKER People who create problems or difficulties for others on purpose or intentionally are called troublemakers. Example : Smith has the reputation of being a troublemaker at the high school, he is the most disliked student by teachers. OLD AS THE HILLS Something that is exceedingly old could be referred as ‘Old as the hills’ . It means it has existed for a very long time. Example : Difficult relationship between couples are nothing new; the problems are as old as the hills. NUTTY AS A FRUIT CAKE This idiom is used as an adjective phrase to describe someone who is way too crazy. Example : Don't pay any attention to Mary’s tricks; she's nutty as a fruitcake.
