In this class your will learn
about participle adjectives. The difference in meaning between -ing and
-ed. Participle adjectives come from? You guessed it, participles! You have learned that the present
participle is formed by adding -ing. For example,
the present participle of look is looking. And the present participle
of dance is dancing. The past participle is
generally formed by adding -ed. Look becomes looked. And dance becomes danced. Present and
past participles are used in verb tenses. Some participles can also
function as adjectives. Look at these participle adjectives. Exciting, excited, amusing, amused, boring, bored, soothing, soothed. What do they have in common? They are feelings. When we use the past
participle as an adjective, we are talking about the feeling itself. This feeling is inside you. It comes to you from outside. The present participle is
the cause of this feeling. Let's say, money. When I see money, I am excited. The cause of this excitement is money. Money is exciting. When I have it, I am very excited Let's look at another example. They are laughing. They are amused. What's causing this? The TV show must be funny. It is amusing. Outside to inside. They are amused. They are laughing. Both of these sentences have participles. How do you know when a participle is
a verb and when it's an adjective? Well, try the "very" test. Very laughing. They are very laughing. Can you say that? No. So, laughing is being used here as a verb. Let's look at the other one. Very amused. They are very amused. Can you say that? Yes. So, amused here is being
used as an adjective. This boy is sad. It's raining, so
he can't play outside with his friends. He's been stuck at home all day. Which sentence is correct? The child is boring,
or, the child is bored? If you say that, the child is boring, then you are saying that he
is not an interesting person. People don't like talking and
listening to him. But that's not true. He is an interesting
boy with many friends. The answer is, the child is bored. He is not causing this feeling. The poor weather is causing this feeling. The rain is boring. Just like regular adjectives, participle adjectives do not need
to be at the end of a sentence. They can go in front of nouns. Here's another way to say this,
he is a bored child. To him, this is boring weather. Fortunately, it can't rain forever. Let's not have a boring day. After doing some practice activities
with participle adjectives go out and enjoy yourself. Maybe you can go to the beach. Let the ocean air inside your soul. The ocean air is soothing. And you will be soothed.
