Enough and Plenty – English Vocabulary Lesson

Enough and Plenty - English Vocabulary Lesson

There was plenty of rain this week!

There are plenty of people in the world studying English now. And of course there are plenty of language schools and websites like Happy English to help them reach their goals. I think studying a language for only a short time is not enough. You need to have enough time to understand how the language works and enough knowledge of the language to be able to communicate using it. Of course, knowing plenty of vocabulary will also help!

Today, let’s have a look at enough and plenty. Enough is used as a determiner before a noun to show that a sufficient amount of that noun exists. Enough can be used in a negative and positive sentence:

  • Do we have enough wine for the party?
  • I think I have eaten enough donuts today.
  • Jack has enough work to do. Let’s have Jenny write that report.
  • I don’t have enough gasoline. I’m going to stop at that service station.

Enough can also be used as a pronoun

  • No more cake for me. I’ve had enough!
  • We’ve worked hard today. That’s enough for one day. Let’s go home.
  • Kisses from my dog? I can never get enough!

Plenty is used as a pronoun, and means a large or sufficient quantity of something exists. We use plenty of + noun, or just plenty. Note that plenty is not normally used in a negative sentence:

  • We have plenty of wine for the party.
  • I have eaten plenty of donuts today.
  • Jack has plenty of work to do. Let’s have Jenny write that report.
  • I don’t need more coffee. I’ve had plenty.
  • Don’t give him any more books. He has plenty.

Now, it’s your turn. How about writing a few sentences using this vocabulary in the comment box below? I’ll review them for you!
