Student or Learner
in my daily life I usually hear terms like "think different" or "think big" , are those grammatically correct? are they just like "sound good" (verbs that are followed by adjectives)
thank you in advance!
Hi Anh Vu,
The short answer? No, these phrases are not grammatically correct.
The longer answer (~and perhaps you'll find even longer ones to follow in subsequent posts to this thread ):
The phrases that you ask about are examples of what grammarians, lexicographers, and commentators on usage refer to as "colloquial phrases," that is, phrases that you are likely to hear in common speech but which have yet to have been accepted by established usage panels.
