Hi there,

Could you please check for me if I am correct in these usages "worth vs worthy".


It is worth considering or buying. (Worth for things only)

You are worthy this honor. (Worthy for people only)

He is worthy to receive this prize or title.


Cheers

Note we say eg He is worth every penny of the huge salary they pay him


You are worthy OF this honor. (Worthy for people only) worthy of is a lot more common than 'worthy to'.

He is worthy to receive this prize or title.

Thanks Sir,

On the other way if I say,

It is worthy of buying. It's not wrong. But strange English. . People may smile if you say it.

He is worthy of every penny of the salary they pay him. It's not wrong. But strange English. . People may smile if you say it.

He is worth this honor or of this honor. No.

Could they be correct?


Cheers
