    verbatim

    Verbatim is given as an adjective but it seems like a name to me.

    "your quotations must be verbatim"

    Verbatim is used as a name above.

    Thank you.

    I don't know why you think that. The dictionary definition is clear.

    Who or what do you think is being named?

    Adjectives affects names but verbatim stands there as a name itself, quotation vice verbatim. Quotation is a name and sentence means your quotations are quotations they are verbatim.

    Thank you.

    Re: verbatim

    I think you mean "noun" instead of "name."

    Compare the following.

    Your clothes must be clean.
    Your quotation must be verbatim.

    Do you think "clean" is a noun in the above?

    Yes, I have confussed between name and noun but I think yes clean is a noun there, at least adjectival noun. Can you explain it?

    Thank you.

    Re: verbatim

    "Clean" is an adjective. Consider "Your clothes are/must be clean" or "These are clean clothes."

    Note the correct spelling of confused.

    1. I somehow remember that they are adjective origined nouns, so are we taught incorrectly? But isn't it clear that their role is like nouns because they are not always modifying nouns?

    2. Thank you for correction but does I am confused between=I have confused here?

    Thank you.

    Re: verbatim

    These are clean clothes.

    In this sentence, clean is an attributive adjective. It precedes the thing it describes, (clothes).


    These clothes are clean.

    In this sentence, clean is a predicative adjective. It follows the copula verb be to form the predicate of the sentence. The thing it describes (clothes) is the subject of the sentence.


    These clothes are mine.

    In this sentence, mine is a pronoun (a noun). Both nouns and adjectives can occupy a predicative position. Because of this, I can see why they may be confused.


    2. to confuse two things

    You confused 'noun' and 'name'.


    or

    You confused 'noun' with 'name'.

    1. You used simple past instead of present perfect so do you mean "I have confused noun with name" be incorrect?
    2. You used "and" or "with" instead of "between" so do you mean "I confused between 'noun' and 'name' be incorrect?

    Thank you.

    It's correct in the right context. If you're writing a new post referring to a recent previous one, the simple past is more likely.

    2. You used "and" or "with" instead of "between" so do you mean "I confused between 'noun' and 'name'" be is incorrect?
    Yes. It's incorrect.
