Hi my friends foreigners!
Have you ever PLAIN REFUSED to eat certain food just because you PLAIN HATE IT?
Or maybe you PLAIN LIKE watching a certain TV program and you’d watch the same old episodes for the hundredth time given the chance?
Not that these questions make any sense, I just made up these grammar constructs to show you guys how you can use the simple English word PLAIN in an American way!
Yes, in American English PLAIN can be simply used to describe a very intense action, feeling or emotion; it can also be used to describe your attitude towards other people.
A PLAIN refusal to help, for example, means an outright refusal when you wouldn’t even consider some alternative solution to rectify the situation for the person who asks for your help.
As always, you’re welcome to watch the video above where I’m talking about how the word PLAIN is used in American English – and not only!
