    Smile Is the sentence correct?

    I watched someone explaining that 'to infinitive' is used as an adjective in a sentence, like the adjective 'good'. And I heard him saying like the following sentence.
    Is it grammatically correct? Is there something wrong?

    Do you think the part(=as good is namely as an adjective) is correct?
    If it's incorect, correct sentence.

    I might have heard wrongly. Anyway I want your opinions.
    I don't need the information about 'to infinitive'.
    Thanks in advance

    -That shows you that 'to watch' is functioning in the same way as 'good' is namely as an adjective. -

    Ex: That shows you that 'to watch' is functioning in the same way as 'good' is (functioning). Namely,
    as an adjective.

    __________________________________________________ ___
    Try explaining it this way,
    I heard someone explain that 'to infinitive' can be used as an adjective in a sentence, like the adjective 'good'. And I heard him say the following sentence:
    That shows you that 'to watch' is functioning in the same way
    as 'good' is namely as an adjective.

    Is that sentence grammatically correct? Is there something wrong? Do you think the phrase as 'good' is namely as an adjective is correct? If it's incorrect, correct the sentence please.

    I might have heard wrong. Anyway I want your opinions. I don't need information about how to use 'to infinitive'.

    Thanks in advance.
