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?
Approved answer (verified by Tanit)
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.
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!
I like it. It sounds positive.
Let's enrich our vocabularies.
