    Question Free

    Hi got into heated debate with a friend.

    In this sentence:
    I won't offer my services for free.

    Does the word "free" act as an adverb of offer
    or an adjective for services?

    What lexeme form is the word free

    Hello visitor,

    I'm not a teacher but I think the word 'free' in your example is an adjective which complement the noun services.

    The grammar rule is the following: adverbs tell us somethnig about verb, adjective and sometimes about others adverb.

    Did you think the word 'services' is an adjective or verb or adverb.

    I believe I'm right.

    Have a nice day.
