Hello! I am Teacher Ellen,the grammar teacher
of CNN and this is my column.


For those who want to learn more about grammar,
this column is for all of you.

Today I would like to share this lesson about
expressing someone's character.

The verb“be”followed by an adjective of character
can be used to express someone 's character.

We can use"be"either in the present
or in the progressive.
However、there is a difference in meaning.
Consider these examples:

A. Jack is kind.


This sentence is in the present,which expresses
Jack 's general or usual character. It is a fact.


B. Jack is being kind.


This sentence is in the progressive,which expresses
Jack 's temporary character.

At this moment,it is Jack 's character but it does not
actually mean that he is usually kind.


Very few adjectives can be used with'be"
in the progressive.
Foolish,nice,kind,lazy,careful,patient,silly,rude.
polite and generous are just some of the adjectives
we can use.

Avoid using adjectives that do not express
character or your sentence will sound strange.

Consider this:I am being hungry.

Although you want to express that this is your state
at this moment,the adjective "hungry"does not express
character. Thus、your sentence is strange.

* Next time you talk about someone 's character,you can
be more specific.

Use the present"be"when you mean general character
and use the progressive"be"when you mean temporary
character.*

Ellen
