Fun

Post by mavisbramston »

I often hear this, especially on TV

IT’S VERY FUN

It sounds wrong but is it?


If I have mentioned this before...sorry

Often the word fun being used in ways that sound wrong to me.
I am not sure.

FUN is a noun. FUNNY is an adjective. Fun can be funny, but what is fun for a prankster may not be funny for the victim. I think the edge gets blurred when we say "It was a lot of fun" and "It was very funny", and merge them into something like "It was very much fun." I would be interested to see what others think!
I dream, therefore I am.
