Which would you say please?

1 The dog doesn't scare/get scared as much when she's alone with me as when she's with her master.
2 The dog isn't as scared when she's alone with me as when she's with her master.

What's the difference between sentence one and two, Is one a verb and 2 an adjective?

Thank you

1 The dog doesn't scare/get scared as much when she's alone with me as when she's with her master.

scare/get scared = 'feel frightened'
(verbs)

2 The dog isn't as scared when she's alone with me as when she's with her master.
as scared= as frightened
(adjective)
I'd say there's a slight difference in meaning. As I see it, the second sentence leaves you with the impression that the master is somehow the scaring element, whereas in the first sentence the stress is on the fact that "me" is a reassuring figure for the dog, more than her master, but the scaring element is another.

Hi,

The meaning of the first sentence is, the 'bitch'(because you used 'she') get scared with his master than with you.

The second sentence means that the 'bitch' is equally familiar with both of them. (Or it is not scared with both of them)

Thanks.

Hi,

The opposite of the dog is not 'cat'. Didn't u read my answer fully? ......Because I said '........as you used 'she'. So I meant the 'Gender'. 'b' 'i' 't' 'c' 'h'. Ok?

Thanks.
Toms MathewThe opposite of the dog is not 'cat'.

Hi,

By the way, no call for obscene language... Emotion: shake

Hi,

You are here to answer. Please, answer to the post. And the rest is to you..........And the word is not obscene......because it is the opposite gender of the 'dog'.

Thanks.
