    Dear Teacher-Support

    I teach in Germany and have been asked by a student, who has just returend from the US, in which context and how the word 'choosey/choosy' can be used. e.g. 'that was choosey'...


    Many thanks

    "My son is very choosey in the vegetables he eats, he likes only peppers, tomatoes and sometimes potatoes."

    "Mary takes her time shopping for clothes, she is very choosey in her apparel."

    I am not a teacher.

    A person can be choosy. A thing cannot be choosy, because things don't make choices. You might say something like, "That was choosy behavior," but otherwise, "That was choosy" doesn't make sense.
