You should have seen the shocked look on jill's face.γιατι λεμε shocked κ οχι shocking?
It's used to tell us that the expression on Jill's face showed that she, herself, was shocked by something seen/heard/happening. If shocking had been used, it would tell us that the expression on Jill's face was shocking to the people who were looking at her...for example, she could be smiling when hearing something sad. Shocked = adjective. Shocking = adverb.
In other words, shocked = σοκαρισμένος, shocking = σοκαριστικός
Hi chrispa - Welcome!
shocking - this has an effect on me
shocked - something has had an effect on Jill
1. he is interesting - he has an effect on someone
he is interested - something/someone has an effect on him
2. I am confused because the problem is confusing.
All of these are adjectives. The adverb is shockingly.
Have a look here:
"The adverb is shockingly."
Ooops! You're right, of course! Sorry about that.
In one of my several other lives, I was an English teacher in Athens! I'll tell you a funny story: sometimes 'little guys' (I mainly taught older students but sometimes had to fill in for a colleague) would say to me, "Miss, I am very boring"! I won't tell what immediately popped into my mind - it's not very nice!
My sister in law has been in Canada 40 years and she still says she's boring.
