¿Cómo se utiliza enough?

¿Cómo se utiliza enough? es una de las preguntas que te suelen preguntar los alumnos una vez les corriges algunos de sus errores al usar esta palabra.

First, pay attention to its pronunciation as it is a bit different. So enough is pronounced as /ɪˈnʌf/. If I were you, I would use an online dictionary to practise, for example  http://www.wordreference.com,  http://www.thefreedictionary.com

Secondly, the grammar rule is as follows:

  • Enough + a noun
  • Adjective + Enough

Examples:

  1. Some staff is going to be redundant as there isn’t enough work (NOUN)
  2. I don’t have enough money (NOUN) for a holiday.
  3. I don’t think my son is old (ADJECTIVE) enough to walk to school on his own. He’s just 5 years old.

There is also a saying with ‘enough’:

Enough is enough! = ¡basta ya!,¡ ya está bien!

Example: Enough is enough! If you don’t pass all your exams, you won’t be allowed to play computer games. 

EXERCISE: write ‘enough’ in the correct space: 

  1. Do you have ___________  flour __________ to make the cake? 
  2. I would like to be a basketball player, but I’m not ___________  tall __________.
  3. There isn’t ___________  milk __________ in the fridge. Can you buy some, please?
  4. I don’t have ___________  warm clothes __________ for such cold weather so I have to buy something before travelling to Sweeden.
  5. I’ll heat up this soup again. It’s not ___________  hot __________.
