Quiz – 形容詞 + ed/ing ★★

1 Comment

A lot of students have difficulty knowing when to use adjectives ending with -ing or -ed. Here’s something I found on the Internet:

「~ed」、 「~ing」 の形容詞(bored、boring など)
についてお伺いします。

「~ed」 は一般的に、人の感情・精神状態に使うと思いますが

(人・生物) 以外でも使われる事はありますか?

そして「~ing」 は物・状況・人に対して使うとありますが
“「~ed」は人の感情、 「~ing」は人” に使うという所が
混乱してしまうのです。

人に対して使う「~ing」は、その人自体=性格 に対して
という事でしょうか?

また、例えばドラマにて、partyで隣に座っている人が
何も話さず黙々としていて,このpartyつまらないと
感じる時 ”…boring.” と呟くとすると、人、その場の雰囲気
のどちらにつまらないという事を表しているのでしょうか。
