cada cosa en su sitio III: el orden de los adjetivos

CB022169

Una de las reglas más importantes de la gramática inglesa es muy fácil de explicar (pero por lo visto muy difícil de poner en práctica): los adjetivos se colocan antes de los sustantivos.

She’s a very special person. (She’s a person very special. X)

They live in a really big house. (They live in a house really big.X)

Los adjetivos no tienen número en inglés.

They’ve been to many different places. (They’ve been to many differents places.X)

Chickens are ugly. (Chickens are uglies. X)

Aunque esta explicación ha sido muy corta, ¡estos errores son grandes! Ahora, a practicar…

    Hi Zac…

    I think you forgot to put a S aflter building “4. There are a lot of tall building in New York.”

  • Boris dice:

    Hi Zac,

    From my viewpoint there is a mistake in one of the answers ( Number 4 ). Is the correct expresion “tall building ” or “tall buildings” ( with “s” )? As you say must be the last one.

    Thanks a lot.

    Boris.

  • Ismael dice:

    Hi Zac, I agree with Carlos about the plural in the word ‘building’ just in number four exercise. But, I’ve got some more doubts. Is it possible to say ‘These are new shoes’ instead of ‘These shoes are new’? and, let me ask you several ones: Is it possible to say ‘He really asks difficult questions’? and, don’t you think that sounds better: ‘Do you know where is an inexpensive restaurant’? and, finally, Could I say: ‘These are horrible oranges’? That’s all. Thank you, very much, indeed. Ismael
