Grammar 101 – Part 3 📖✏⁣ (Month 2)

Boring vs Bored 💬💬💬

Have you ever come across someone who mixes up the words boring and bored wrongly? Have you have heard someone who uses these words incorrectly that may lead to an unwanted misleading or miscommunication? Do you still find it difficult or confusing to differentiate these words?

Every word has its own meaning and function, even the words that are almost identical. It may be fatal if you misuse a word, both in your conversations or written documents. 💬📄

So, what is the difference between bored and boring? ❓❓❓

No worries! As always, we got you covered! 😊👍

First of all, let’s discuss about the basic word that these two words originated from: bore (verb).

According to Oxford Dictionary, bore is “to make somebody feel bored, especially by talking too much.”

📌What does boring mean?

Boring is an ADJECTIVE that means SOMETHING is not interesting or exciting.

For example: “The lesson was so boring that she fell asleep.”

📌 What does bored mean?

Bored is an ADJECTIVE that describes when SOMEONE feels tired and unhappy because something is not interesting or because they have nothing to do.

For example: “She was so bored that she fell asleep.”

Most verbs which express emotions, such as to bore, may use either the present or the past participle as an adjective, but the meaning of the participle is often different.

The words bored and boring have one uncanny thing in common: they are both adjectives. This doesn’t mean that they have the same function. The word bored describes a person’s feeling while the word boring describes something (usually an object or a situation). Make sure that you use the correct word at the right time! 😀👌✅

For instance, the phrase “I’m boring.” indicates that you have a boring and uninteresting personality. However, the phrase “I’m bored.” indicates that you are feeling a sense of boredom. See the difference?

We hope we were able to explain to you about the words boring and bored and clear away the confusion between these two words. It takes a lot of practice and dedication to excel in English grammar. Never stop practicing!⁣ 👍💪✊⁣
