a noun or an adjective - ???


Recommended Posts

Hello everybody! Please tell me how to determine what it is - a noun or an adjective -  "true" in this sentence This is ... true. (It can be "the true" as noun It can be "true" as adjective). I am confused ... Thank you!

Hello S_Elena,

True is an adjective. Like in: a true statement or a true story. So in your example above, this is true is correct but you cannot say  "this is the true."

Truth is a noun, so you can say "this is the truth."

Actually, you say the truth when what you are saying is true.

I hope it has helped
