PREFACE


A strong command of the English language is directly linked to career advancement and our social success. Every day people judge us by the words we use. Right or wrong, but they make assumptions about our intelligence, our education or our capabilities. Nothing makes a better impression than a solid mastery of the English language. A person, who can’t express ideas eloquently, who hesitates of the uncertainty about the right word may appear less than fully competent and qualified. It’s time to be equipped to speak with confidence at all times. These tests are likely to help you amass and possess a powerful vocabulary, avoid embarrassing mistakes and remove obstacles in your path.

^ IV PARTICIPLES AS ADJECTIVES


Very often, when there is no regular adjective form for a verb, the present or past participle of the verb can be used as an adjective. It is sometimes difficult for foreign students to decide whether to use the present [verb + ing] or past [verb + ed] or [verb + en] parti­ciple as an adjective.

The present participle [verb + ing] is used as an adjective when the noun it modifies performs or is responsible for an action. The verb is usually intransitive (it doesn’t take an object) and the verb form of the sentence is the progressive (continuous) aspect.

The crying baby woke Mr. Binion.

(The baby was crying).

The purring kitten snuggled close to the fireplace.

(The kitten was purring).

The blooming flowers in the meadow created a rainbow of colors.

(The flowers were blooming).

The past participle is used as an adjective when the noun it modifies is the receiver of the action. The sentence from which this adjective comes is generally in the passive aspect.

The sorted mail was delivered to the offices before noon.

(The mail had been sorted).

Frozen food is often easier to prepare than fresh food.

(The food had been frozen).

The imprisoned men were unhappy with their living conditions.

(The men had been imprisoned).

Other verbs such as interest, bore, excite, and frighten are even more difficult. The rule is basically the same as that given above. The [verb + ing] form is used when the noun causes the action and the [verb + ed] form is used when it receives the action. Compare the following groups of sentences.

The boring professor put the students to sleep.

The boring lecture put the students to sleep.

The bored students went to sleep during the boring lecture.

The child saw a frightening movie.

The frightened child began to cry.
