Substantive Adjective - 實名詞

 

Just as nouns can function like adjectives, some adjectives may function as nouns (substantive, 實名詞).  Generally, adjectives that function as substantive are ones that apply to people or things and are preceded by a definite article, such as “the rich and the poor”.  In this case, the adjective functions as a noun rather than modifying one.

Sense verbs are verbs (such as feel, taste, smell, hear, see, watch, sense, listen to, sound, look, appear, and seem) that describe someone's sensation or feeling or perception.  Unlike other verbs, they require adjective, not adverb, modifiers.

For example:

The rotisserie chicken tastes awfully. (X)
