More adjectives

December 7, 2014

 

File of more adjectives:

adjectives 2

 

 

 

A couple of important notes about these adjectives.

1.There is more than one way to say something. For example:

مَمْلُوْءٌ and مَلِيْءٌ and مُمْتَلِئٌ all mean “full”

Both خَطِرٌ and خَطِيْرٌ mean “dangerous”

سَمِيْكٌ and غَلِيْظٌ both mean “thick”

جَائِعٌ and جَوْعَانُ both mean “hungry”

أَنِيْسٌ and وَدُوْدٌ both mean “friendly

So these words will have synonyms.

2.Words will have more than one meaning (just like in English – think about: what does the word “match” mean), so judge the meaning based on the context in which it is used.

For example, وَدُوْدٌ means “friendly” in some contexts, while in other contexts it means “affectionate” or “loving”

صَحِيْحٌ means “healthy” and it also means “authentic”

كَبِيْرٌ means “large” and it also means “old”

So judge the meaning of the word based on the context in which it is used. And if it is a word from the Quran and Sunnah or from the speech or texts of the scholars, then refer back to the scholars of Ahlus Sunnah for the meaning of the word as they are the most knowledgeable of its meaning and the most qualified to give the definition.

3.Some of these words will need a harf to go with them

(harful jarr like مِنْ , بِ , على )

For example, we do not want to say:

أَنَا فَخُوْرٌ

I am proud”

We do want to say:

أنا فخور بِ

I am proud of…”

Some examples of how these are used:

كُنْ حَذِرًا

Be careful!

أَنَا قَلِقٌ عَلَيْهِ

I am worried about him.

هِيَ صَدِيْقَةٌ وَقِيَّةٌ

She is a loyal friend.

هَلْ أَبُوْكَ مَوْجُوْدٌ؟

Is your father available

لا تَكُنْ شَخْصًا فُضُوْلِيًّا

Don’t be a nosy person.

أَنَا مُعْتَادَةٌ عَلَى الظَّلَامِ

I’m used to the dark.
