Hyperlinks Might (Not) Be Adjectives (2)

  • He was a nice person.
  • He was a nice person.
  • He was a nice person.
  • He was a nice person.

Then again, they might be. Or not.  Definitely not in the first sentence.   Again, defend your thoughts in the comments. More to come.

  1. I read the first sentence (before clicking on the link) as “he was a nice person, but now he’s not a nice person.” I always think about which word to link when I’m writing something for the web, and it is something important to consider to make sure your point gets across correctly.

    Maybe it’s not thinking about it in terms of parts of speech, maybe it’s just the way they’re used. Sarcastic links, definition links, straightforward site links, etc. And those have more to do with the voice and tone of the writer than anything.

  2. I’m late to this game, but I was in a workshop last week in which the presenter mentioned hyperlinks as connections. All of the sudden I thought of your posts and began to wonder if the most accurate part of speech would be a conjunction.
