ING/ED adjectives

One of the most common mistakes is to use an adjective ending in -ed or -ing without realising on the difference in meaning.

Some adjectives accept both forms but:

– Adjectives ending in -ed are used to express how a person feels. ex. I am bored.

– Adjectives ending in -ing are used to express how a situation is. ex. This class is boring.
