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)!
We are the generation of nostalgia. We grew up in the age of transition. From hand-written letters to electronic mails. From film to digital. We were fascinated by new things, neglecting the way we spend our afternoons. Cupcakes and tea. Play-Doh and Polly Pockets. Young and naive. Technology completely changed the way we waited and we grew up too fast. The simple things in life seems more meaningful now. We grew up in the age of transition and have become the generation of nostalgia.
bisexual guys are assumed to be secretly gay
bisexual girls are assumed to be secretly straight
both are assumed to secretly like men
see what i’m getting at?
Don’t forget that gay men are gay because they lacked a “strong male figure”. And lesbians either haven’t found the right man or are gay because of a guy.
