Listener Feedback: David from Mexico has left us a voice message and asks about adjectives, adverbs, verbs and nouns

We answered who and whom in Episode 72 ( http://www.inglespodcast.com/2015/10/11/you-and-i-you-and-me-afterwards-after-all-who-whom-whose-airc72/ )

Whoever / whomever - It doesn't matter who. "I will give my clothes to whoever needs them."

"Whosoever" is old fashioned and not used very often, especially in spoken English. "Whosoever" is used in formal English, like in the bible, for example:

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." - John 3:16

Adjectives, adverbs, verbs and nouns

NOUN - Reza drank his coffee (coffee is a noun)

VERB - Reza drank his coffee (drank is the verb)

ADVERB - Reza drank his coffee slowly (adverb - slowly, quickly, noisily, beautifully)

ADJECTIVE - Reza drank his hot coffee slowly (adjective describes the noun - strong, weak coffee)


sly - astuto, taimado/a (a sly fox)

David used the example HELP - verb and noun. What's the adjective? 'helpful' / 'unhelpful' / 'helpless' - and the adverb? 'helpfully'

Study them in a table:


economy economize economical/economic economically

analysis analyse analytical analytically

apology apologise apologetic apologetically


There is a table and exercises about this in our MansionFirst cd for the First Certificate exam ( http://www.mansioningles.com/cd_first.htm )

PROVERBS - What is a proverb? - A simple and concrete saying, popularly known and repeated, that expresses a truth based on common sense or the practical experience of humanity.
A proverbs are often metaphorical (metaphor - metáfora).

"A stitch in time saves nine."

"Two wrongs don't make a right."
When someone has done something bad to you, trying to get revenge will only make things worse.

"When in Rome, do as the Romans."
Act the way that the people around you are acting. Have your dinner at 9pm in Spain. Drink lots of tea in the UK.

"When the going gets tough, the tough get going."
Tweet This! Strong people don't give up when they come across challenges. They just work harder.

"No man is an island."
Tweet This! You can't live completely independently. Everyone needs help from other people.

"Two heads are better than one."
It's better to work with someone than to work alone.

"Too many cooks spoil the broth."
Too many people together could produce a bad result.
