I have a doubt, a very basic one but I haven't found an answer to it yet.
It's about the verb "WORTH".
Someone told me that it is incorrect to write the verb WORTH without the verb "to be" first. For example:
"This cellphone will be worth 250 dollars next month" - CORRECT
"This cellpone will worth 250 dollars next month" - INCORRECT
"This is worth ten dollars"
"This worths ten dollars"
WHICH ONE IS CORRECT OR INCORRECT?
I want to know because I've found several web-pages in which they say that WORTH is a verb and can be conjugated in all the tenses (like in VERBIX.COM)
So I would like to know when is it correct to use "to be worth" and when to use "worth" as a normal verb.
They wasn't worth much.
They weren't supposed to have been worth much.
If they had done the job they would have been considered worthy much more.
also is it possible to say
If they did the job they would be considered worthy much more.
How to say this sentences correctly?
But please look at my sentences again after I've added some of them.
Change "worthy" to "worth" in the second set of examples.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
Now I can go to get some sleep.
And I wish you sweet dreams!
I've slept pretty well.
Ok, so worth can be either a noun or an adjective!
Thanks a lott!!!
