If "rising" is an adjective, then so is "cheatin'".
Comment below threshold:
Apr 23rd, 2012 at 13:52 GMT
I did question that, but since 'rising' can't be a verb, and 'cheating' can't be an adjective (at least according to the dictionary I used), I thought it would be OK. I do see their similar usage in the titles though.

Also, it's Rick James, not James Rick

Can't believe I tried "Chocolate" for _____ Rain.
Feb 19th, 2013 at 19:50 GMT
It's "The Temptations", not "The Temptation."
Feb 19th, 2013 at 19:55 GMT
In the Maureen McGovern song, "After" is describing "Morning." "Morning" is a noun and by definition cannot be described by an adverb.
Feb 19th, 2013 at 20:23 GMT
@dando72 Not really. The title is a shortening of a sentence "There's got to be a morning after" where the after is behaving as an adverb specifying when for the verb to be.
Feb 19th, 2013 at 20:36 GMT
Without "are," "Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain" is a noun phrase, with "crying in the rain" acting as a participial (adjective) phrase. "your," "my," and "our" are possessive pronouns and therefore adjectives.
Feb 19th, 2013 at 20:55 GMT
"Wake up" is technically phrasal verb, so "up" would be a verb, not an adverb.
Feb 19th, 2013 at 21:08 GMT
@dando72; @sproutcm: "After" does not describe "morning" here. "There's got to be a morning after" is quite a poor sentence anyway. It should either read as: "There's got to be a morning afterwards" (where afterwards would be an adverb), or "There's got to be a morning after this one" (where after would be an adjective, qualifying "this one" and not morning). After is an adjective or a subordinating conjunction, never an adverb. It can appear as one incorrectly in common usage as above, but it isn't - either because the noun it qualifies is missing or because the correct word should be 'afterwards' (which is always an adverb.
Feb 19th, 2013 at 21:23 GMT
Aw, no conjunctions or interjections?
Feb 19th, 2013 at 21:27 GMT
This conversation has gotten too deep for me, but in any source I look at, after is described as an adverb for precisely this use eg "five days after", "happily ever after". I couldn't explain why this is.
Feb 19th, 2013 at 21:32 GMT
5 stars for sticking Jars of Clay into this quiz!
Feb 19th, 2013 at 22:22 GMT
"All Along the Watchtower" was written and first performed by Bob Dylan, not Jimi Hendrix. Not that this really changes anything for the quiz, I suppose, but it's a common misconception I want to help clear up.
Feb 19th, 2013 at 22:23 GMT
I am no grammar nerd/anorak/know-all so can somebody expain how "after", "too" and "right" can be considered adverbs in the answers above and what are the verbs they relate to?
Feb 19th, 2013 at 22:36 GMT
@statto2: whilst adjectives qualify nouns, adverbs qualify verbs, adjectives or even other adverbs: best illustrated by "extremely" as in: He was extremely tired (avd qualifying an adj) or "He ran extremely quickly" (adv qualifying another adv)... Does that help?
Feb 19th, 2013 at 22:42 GMT
... but the pronoun section is a mess...: "your", "my" and "our" are not pronouns - they're possessive adjectives...
Feb 19th, 2013 at 22:43 GMT
Let's give Miss Parton her due. It was her song first after all. http://youtu.be/NuZO1iT4kD0
Feb 19th, 2013 at 22:45 GMT
Sorry to break up the discussion of the finer points of English grammar, but thought I'd just say well done on the excellent mix of music from different eras and genres
Feb 20th, 2013 at 00:11 GMT
An excellent quiz, thank you!
Feb 20th, 2013 at 00:44 GMT
The One Direction song adds a nice touch. Kudos and 5 globes from me :)
Feb 20th, 2013 at 00:50 GMT
"Behind Blue Eyes" under 50%? That makes me sad.
Feb 20th, 2013 at 01:22 GMT
5 stars for you.
Feb 20th, 2013 at 02:27 GMT
At first I thought it said ____ Tonight was by the Eagles. Then I thought, "Wait a minute, Heartache isn't a verb..."
Feb 20th, 2013 at 02:31 GMT
@ClamBuckets: While "All Along the Watchtower" was written by Dylan, Hendrix performed the most recognizable version. As far as 'after' as an adverb, I think the full format of the sentence would likely be "The morning after (whatever we did last night)", the after clearly referencing the action taken the previous evening. This is speculation, of course, as I'm not really familiar with the song. It was one that I missed. I believe that your, my, our, his, etc, while technically adjectives are specifically described as possessive pronouns (from my fuzzy memory of grammar from 25 years ago). I'm not sure how right is considered an adverb, as both here and now are nouns, however vague.
Feb 20th, 2013 at 03:39 GMT
Around can be a preposition too. Not saying the quiz is wrong, just stuck out at me while doing the quiz and had to look it up.
Feb 20th, 2013 at 10:12 GMT
Great quiz :D but I Will Always Love You is originally by Dolly Parton not Whitney Houston :)
Feb 20th, 2013 at 11:00 GMT
To those complaining about who sang the song originally... who cares? The quiz isn't about the singer or songwriter. It's about grammar. The artist is only listed as a clue to help you out. Sheesh!
Feb 20th, 2013 at 13:18 GMT
I still can't wrap my head around "after" even after reading all these comments. It didn't stop me from getting the answer correct, but I can't interpret it any other way than "which morning?" "the morning after" therefore modifying "morning".
Feb 20th, 2013 at 23:15 GMT
Surprised at all the new wave songs bringing up the rear-- 3 out of the last 4 (I got the Al Green Green one due to the Talking Heads cover). And then there is the Police at #1.
Feb 21st, 2013 at 02:12 GMT
My, your, her, our, etc. are possessive adjectives (determiners). Mine, yours, hers, ours, etc. are possessive pronouns. Know your facts!
