#ENGVOCAB: SICK, ILL, PAIN, ACHE, HURT, AND INJURY

Hello fellas, how was your day?

Let’s imagine you are a doctor. What would you ask your patience when they come for a check-up?

You can ask, “What do you have?” or “What’s wrong?”

We will discuss different ways to answer that question. We will use sick, ill, pain, ache, hurt, and injury in the sentences. Let’s get started!

  1. Sick and ill are adjectives. These words are similar in meaning.

E.g:

I feel ill.”

I feel sick.”

However, sick is more often used as a way to express nuisance or annoyance.

E.g: “I’m so sick of this song. Can you turn it off?”

2. Pain and ache are nouns.

E.g:

I feel pain in my arm.”

“I feel pain in my whole body.”

If the pain is on a specific, known area, use ache.

E.g:

I have a headache and a stomachache and a backache.”

3. Hurt is a verb. It is used to show that you feel pain.

E.g: ” Aw, that hurts! Don’t touch me there.”

4. Injury is a noun, usually used after an accident that affects you for a while.

E.g.:

I have leg injury after falling from the bicycle. I don’t think I can play football.

She survived the accident without injury.”

Fellas, now you can use these words in the right sentences and situation. See you next time!
