Is it ๐••๐•ฆ๐•– ๐•ฅ๐•  or ๐•“๐•–๐•”๐•’๐•ฆ๐•ค๐•– ๐• ๐•—? ๐Ÿค”ย 

Ever wondered if you're using ๐••๐•ฆ๐•– ๐•ฅ๐•  and ๐•“๐•–๐•”๐•’๐•ฆ๐•ค๐•– ๐• ๐•— correctly?

Yep, me too. It's nuanced. And it all boils down to nouns and verbs.

Here's a simple breakdown of when to use which one.

And there's a quick tip at the end so you'll never forget again!

โžก ๐”ป๐•ฆ๐•– ๐•ฅ๐•  should modify a noun (like an adjective).ย 

For example, ๐•ฅ๐•™๐•– ๐•Ž๐•š๐•ž๐•“๐•๐•–๐••๐• ๐•Ÿ ๐•ž๐•’๐•ฅ๐•”๐•™ ๐•”๐•’๐•Ÿ๐•”๐•–๐•๐•๐•’๐•ฅ๐•š๐• ๐•Ÿ ๐•จ๐•’๐•ค ๐••๐•ฆ๐•– ๐•ฅ๐•  ๐•ฃ๐•’๐•š๐•Ÿ.

โžก ๐”น๐•–๐•”๐•’๐•ฆ๐•ค๐•– ๐• ๐•— should modify a verb (like an adverb).ย 

For example, ๐•ฅ๐•™๐•– ๐•Ž๐•š๐•ž๐•“๐•๐•–๐••๐• ๐•Ÿ ๐•ž๐•’๐•ฅ๐•”๐•™ ๐•จ๐•’๐•ค ๐•”๐•’๐•Ÿ๐•”๐•–๐•๐•๐•–๐•• ๐•“๐•–๐•”๐•’๐•ฆ๐•ค๐•– ๐• ๐•— ๐•ฃ๐•’๐•š๐•Ÿ.

โžก Use ๐•“๐•–๐•”๐•’๐•ฆ๐•ค๐•– ๐• ๐•— or ๐• ๐•จ๐•š๐•Ÿ๐•˜ ๐•ฅ๐•  rather than ๐••๐•ฆ๐•– ๐•ฅ๐•  at the start of a sentence.ย 

For example, ๐•‹๐•™๐•– ๐••๐•š๐•ค๐•’๐•ก๐•ก๐• ๐•š๐•Ÿ๐•ฅ๐•š๐•Ÿ๐•˜ ๐•ž๐•’๐•ฅ๐•”๐•™ ๐•ฃ๐•–๐•ค๐•ฆ๐•๐•ฅ ๐•จ๐•’๐•ค ๐••๐•ฆ๐•– ๐•ฅ๐•  ๐•ก๐• ๐• ๐•ฃ ๐•ง๐•š๐•ค๐•š๐•“๐•š๐•๐•š๐•ฅ๐•ช.

But, ๐•†๐•จ๐•š๐•Ÿ๐•˜ ๐•ฅ๐•  (๐• ๐•ฃ ๐•“๐•–๐•”๐•’๐•ฆ๐•ค๐•– ๐• ๐•—) ๐•ก๐• ๐• ๐•ฃ ๐•ง๐•š๐•ค๐•š๐•“๐•š๐•๐•š๐•ฅ๐•ช, ๐•ฅ๐•™๐•– ๐•ž๐•’๐•ฅ๐•”๐•™ ๐•ฃ๐•–๐•ค๐•ฆ๐•๐•ฅ ๐•จ๐•’๐•ค ๐••๐•š๐•ค๐•’๐•ก๐•ก๐• ๐•š๐•Ÿ๐•ฅ๐•š๐•Ÿ๐•˜.

โžก ๐•‹๐•†โ„™ ๐•‹๐•€โ„™: If you can replace ๐••๐•ฆ๐•– ๐•ฅ๐•  with ๐•”๐•’๐•ฆ๐•ค๐•–๐•• ๐•“๐•ช, then you are all good.ย 

You're welcome ๐Ÿค“
