Noun and adjective forms

Average: 3.2 (416 votes)

'She is intelligent' or 'she is intelligence'?

Let's take a look at the adjective form of nouns. These words will help you to build your vocabulary and will, hopefully, stop you from using the wrong word in the wrong context. It makes your English sound very strange when you use an adjective instead of a noun (or vice-versa). Take a look at this, mostly complete, A-Z and then choose the correct words to complete the ten sentences below.

Noun Adjective
Anger Angry
Beauty Beautiful
Craziness Crazy
Danger Dangerous
Ease Easy
Familiarity Familiar
Guilt Guilty
Happiness Happy
Intelligence Intelligent
Juice Juicy
Kindness Kind
Luck Lucky
Misery Miserable

Strength Strong
Truth True
Ugliness Ugly

Every witch has her own crystal ball.

Good lesson

It is very easy to choose the right answer from two variants. The main difficulty of speaking (for me, for example) is that I cannot create right sentence at once, quickly and freely.

I met the thought that we speak via sentences, and the most difficult part of speaking is to get enough supply of sentences ready to use.

Now and then I cannot get right word from my mind and I cannot create right sentence. Sad

I hope I will speak better one of these days!
