Vocabulary

fun
funny

Fun” is a noun but “funny” is an adjective.

We use “fun” like this:

It was fun.
It was really good fun.
I had a lot of fun.
We had a lot of fun.
Did you have fun?

It is difficult to translate. How do you translate it in your language?

Funny means “it makes you laugh” but it has two separate nuances. It can also mean “strange” or “weird” so when somebody says:

That was funny.

We say:

“Do you mean funny-strange or funny-haha?”

Funny-strange

means

“weird”

or

“unusual”

and

Funny-haha

means

“it makes you laugh”.

When we enjoyed something, we do not say:

It was funny.

We say:

It was fun.

or

I had a a good time.

or

I had fun

or

I enjoyed it

or

I enjoyed myself.

“It was funny” has quite a different meaning. In fact it has two meanings:

“It made me laugh”

or

“It was strange”.


What do you do for fun? Do you have a hobby? Do you have anything you do regularly to pass time?
