Hello, dear teacher!!!

Please, could you explain this simole sentence for me:

I'm sorry but she's just kind of lost interest in buying the car.

In this sentence where "she's" is "s" of has or is?

and is "lost" participle or past simple(verb or adjective)?

What elemet do normally follows after "kind of", i mean verb, adjective, noun?

Hello Yerlan,

In your sentence she's is a contracted form of she has. The verb lost is a past participle. Together this forms the present perfect (she's lost = she has lost), which is used because the action took place in the recent past and has a result which is relevant now (she owns a new car).

 

Kind of is a very flexible phrase and can be used before many different types of word:

He's kind of nice. [before an adjective]

He kind of ran away. [before a verb]

It's kind of a family tradition. [before a noun]

Sir,
I'd very much like me a shoutout on the Radio.
I'd very much like a shoutout for me on the Radio. Or
I'd very much like myself a shoutout on the Radio.
I'd very much like a shoutout for myself on the Radio.
Which ones are correct the two with 'Me' or the two with 'Myself' or are four of them correct ?

Hello SonuKumar

All of them could be acceptable in informal, non-standard English. I'd say the most correct one in standard English would be the second one.

All the best

Dear Sir,
Pronoun and possessive pronounce are same things or it may different?

Hello Imran 26,

Pronoun is the name of one part of speech (type of word) in English. Possessive pronouns are one kind of pronoun, but there are many other kinds.

You can read about the various types of pronoun and how they are categorised linguistically, on the relevant wikipedia page.

Good Afternoon,
Adjectives with '-ing' and '-ed' in this topic, I could not understand what is the difference between -ing and ed with the adjective. Can you provide some explanation and example for me to understand better? Thank You,
