ADJECTIVES ENDING IN –ED / -ING
Many adjectives that come from verbs can end either –ed or –ing. See the table below.
We use adjectives ending in –ed to describe how someone feels:
I was very tired work so I didn´t go out for a drink. (tired describes my feelings)
We use adjectives ending in –ing to describe how someone or something makes us feel or our opinion about something or someone:
Learning adjectives is boring ! (That is my opinion of learning djectives-It bores me.)
