Kate said just.
Hmm. Adjective or adverb? How should this word be handled today? Because I am homeschooling English / Vocabulary / Spelling / Literature to my sophomore grandson I feel rather smart this morning. So I’ll approach it like this:
Just – adjective: fair, fair-minded, equitable, even-handed, impartial, unbiased, objective, neutral. “A just and democratic society.”
Here’s what I know after 68 years of living.
It ain’t always fair, Louise.
Until Jesus returns and sets up His Kingdom – there will be unfair, injustice, and zero peace.
just – adverb; exactly, precisely, absolutely, “that’s JUST what I need.”
A word I overuse. It is one of those words I turn control F on to find. I’m a just-as-an-adverb abuser.
I’m just saying.
See, I did it again.
