ammonoid asked: Can you explain the sentence "Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo."
So this is the famous sentence about which you ask:
So how is that a sentence?
Anonymous asked: Hi. I'd like to know which one is grammatically correct: the food tastes horrible or the food tastes horribly? Thanks!
"The food tastes horrible"is right. It’s just like saying "The food tastes bad" (not "badly").
By the way, “The food tastes horribly" means that the food is horrible at tasting. In other words, it’s wrong; it makes no sense.
With linking verbs, including the forms of be, taste, and sound, we generally use adjectives, not adverbs.
These are right:
- That girl is very intelligent (adjective)!
- This donut tastes terrible (adjective)!
- This song sounds good (adjective)!
These are wrong:
- That girl is very intelligently (adverb)!
- This donut tastes terribly (adverb)!
- This song sounds well (adjective)!
