The Differences of Adjectives using -ed and -ing

Bismillahirrohmanirrohiim..

Hello gengs..

It has been several days to share some useful information especially about English Lesson to you 🙂

As the title, here are we going to learn how to alter the use of -ed and -ing in forming an adjective since there are a lot of adjectives are made from verbs by adding those two endings.

  1. -ed Adjectives:

The commonest -ed adjectives are:

  • annoyed
  • disappointed
  • bored
  • worried
  • tired
  • excited
  • frightened, etc.

The role: If something someone annoys you, you can say, “I feel annoyed”, so does if something interests you, you can say, “I am interested in something.”

The point is ketika si object yang mempengaruhi atau menyebabkan si subject merasakan sesuatu, maka membentuk Adjactive menggunakan Verb -ed. Sebagaimana contoh di atas, “I feel annoyed or bored” means kamu merasa sebel atau bosan karena sesuatu.

2. -ing Adjectives

The commonest -ed adjectives are:

  • interesting
  • amusing
  • annoying
  • worrying
  • terrifying
  • shocking
  • exciting, etc.

The role: If something someone annoys you, you can say, “She is annoying”, so does if something interests you, you can say, “It is interesting.”

The point is ketika kita ingin menyatakan si subject mempengaruhi atau menyebabkan sesuatu, maka membentuk Adjactive menggunakan Verb -ing. Sebagaimana contoh di atas, “She is annoying.” and/or “The novel is interesting.” mean “Si perempuan itu menyebalkan.” dan/atau “Novel itu menarik.”
