are awared or are aware?

This question has been answered · 7 replies
Hi,

I noticed the use of the word "aware" is :

1) He is aware of the situation or they are aware of the situation

Question, why it is not "is awared" or "are awared " in above examples?

Thanks

Because "aware" is an adjective.

There is no such word as 'awared'. As Khoff said, 'aware' is an adjective. An adjective does not have past tense.

I guess you wanted to say Past Participle instaed of Past Tense, because if "aware" were a verb, in asked example it would be in PP and not in Past Tense. Emotion: smile

Also, this is not a passive sentence, so he is not made awared but aware

Aware is indeed an adjective, and "awared" as the verb (past tense) is not accepted by the establishment, however, since a man that used to work for us (a landscaper) used "aware" as a verb several years ago, we have been trying to introduce it into common usage...and why not? Some may say that we are dreamers, but were not the only ones...come, join us in using aware as a verb...it will make you happy!
