How do you use grand in a sentence?

User Avatar
The word 'grand' functions as a noun and an adjective in a sentence. The noun 'grand' functions as the subject of a sentence or a clause, and as the object of a verb or a preposition. The adjective 'grand' is used to describe a noun. The noun and the adjective both function as a subject complement, a word following a linking verb that restates the subject of the sentence.. Example uses: The baby grand gave the room an elegant aire. (noun, subject of the sentence. I won two grand at the casino! (noun, direct object of the verb 'won') I bought the lovely piano with the two grand that I won. (noun, object of the preposition 'with') A grand staircase rose to the throne. (adjective, describes the noun 'staircase') The hotel had a large, grand lobby. (adjective, describe the noun 'lobby') The piano that she plays is a grand. (noun, subject complement, piano=grand) The view from the cliff was very grand. (adjective, subject complement, view=grand) Note: A noun functioning as a subject complement is called a predicate nominative. An adjective functioning as a subject complement is called a predicate adjective.

How do you you use frenemy in a sentence?

User Avatar
Frenemy is slang, and not an actual word so it isn't used by most people in formal conversation. But in slang, it was created (and new words are often created; they sometimes begin as slang and then work their way into the dictionary) to refer to a person who is both a friend and an enemy-- perhaps someone about whom your opinion frequently changes, or someone who is only a friend sometimes but feels like an enemy at other times.

How do you use the word synonymous in a sentence?

User Avatar
At one point in time, "meat" was synonymous with "food." Although good and fair are usually synonymous, all good things are not necessarily fair. We may welcome bright tiger lilies and mimulus in our gardens today, but their spots were once considered synonymous with disease. Many people consider progress to be synonymous with a loss of traditional values.
