Grammar – ENOUGH

What Does “Enough” Mean?

“Enough” means having as much or as many as needed. It’s not too little, not too much, but just right!

How to Use “Enough”:

  1. As a Pronoun:
    • When we use “enough” as a pronoun, it means we have the right amount of something without repeating the noun.
    • Examples:
      • “Do we have enough?” πŸ’°
        (Enough money?)
      • “Is there enough?” πŸ•
        (Enough food?)
  2. As an Adjective:
    • “Enough” comes before a noun to indicate sufficient quantity.
    • Examples:
      • “We have enough water.” 🚰
      • “There aren’t enough chairs.” πŸͺ‘

    • Examples:

      • “He didn’t run fast enough to win.” πŸƒβ€β™‚οΈ

    “Enough” is often used in questions and negative sentences.
    • “Do you have enough?”
    • “We don’t have enough.”
