    Genius

    What is the proper way to use Genius? Is he a genius? Is he genius? He is ingenius?

    I am not.

    Re: Genius

    Welcome to the forum.

    "Genius" is used as a noun in "He/she is a genius".
    However, it is also used as an adjective these days: "That is a genius idea!"
    "Ingenious" is an adjective too but "He is ingenious" does not mean the same as "He is a genius".
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
