    pride-proud

    Could you identify me "pride", "prideful" and "proud"?
    LIke example, what should I fill in this blank:
    She has always_______ at her of her apperance (proud)

    Do anybody know what the V3 of Pride is?

    Re: pride-proud

    she has always been proud of her appearance.

    pride: verb, noun uncountable (except when talking about packs of lions)
    prideful: adjective == full of pride
    proud: adjective

    by V3 do you mean the present, past simple, and past participle?

    if so then: proud prided prided

    eg:Americans have prided Isreal as a template of democracy in the middle east.

    however 'pride' is not very often used as a verb, usually we say "I am proud of...." using 'be' instead.

    I don't understand that "proud" in green
    It is an adj, isn't it?

    Then, what does "prouded" means?

    Re: pride-proud

    'Prouded' sounds wrong to me; it's 'prided', and it doesn't work with the preposition 'at' for me.

    Re: pride-proud

    You are right belly T, I made a brainfart on that one, it should be pride prided prided.

    She was always prided at the pub for her excellent darts skills.

    ...the at preposition could be used! also:

    It was prided at the club as the organization's greatest achievement.
