What are the differences between: ‘die’, ‘death’ y ‘dead’

La diferencia es tan sencilla como reconocer qué tipo de palabra es cada una de ellas: ‘die’ es un verbo, ‘dead’ un adjetivo y ‘death’ un sustantivo. Veámoslo con un ejemplo:

  • Die (verb): President Kennedy died in 1963. Most people die before they are 100 years old.
  • Dead (adjective): Elvis Presley is not alive, he is dead.
  • Death (noun): Most people don’t like talking about death because death is an unpleasant subject to speak about.

 

Aplicando esta norma, no tendrás ningún problema para utilizar cualquiera de estos términos en cualquier situación que se te presente.
