    enough / enough of

    Hello,
    how do we use "enough" and "enough of"? Are there any differences between these?
    Please, show me every single one of my mistakes. Thank you.

    Re: enough / enough of

    Please write a sentence or two for us to consider.

    Capitalise the first word of every sentence.

    Re: enough / enough of

    Frankly saying, I do not have any examples :) I just want to know some basic rules about "enough" and "enough of". OK, for example:
    I do not have enough of evidences to blame you.
    I do not have enough of vigour to do smth.
    I have enough of milk to cook smth.
    Please, show me every single one of my mistakes. Thank you.

    Re: enough / enough of

    It should be 'have enough something to do something', according to http://www.ldoceonline.com/dictionary/enough_2

    Re: enough / enough of

    OK, the 1st sentence is wrong. It shoud be "I do not have enough evidence to blame you". What about other sentences?

    Re: enough / enough of

    'I do not have enough vigour to run up the stairs.'

    'I have enough milk to make a cup of hot chocolate.'

    Using 'of':

    'I've had enough of your insolence.'

    'I adore fudge ... I can't get enough of it.'

    Re: enough / enough of

    We use enough of before determiners and pronouns.
