Is it “FUN” or “FUNNY”?

Hello there!

The words “FUN” and “FUNNY” can be a bit confusing and always seem to give non-native English speakers trouble.

So, here are some quick examples to help you learn the difference!

FUN

It can be used as an adjective to describe activities that are enjoyable or people

For example

But you can also say:

And in this last example FUN is used as a noun meaning enjoyment.

FUNNY

It is an adjective and we use it to describe people, things or situations that me you laugh

Some people consider him funny.

Funny, isn’t it?

Babies can be a lot of fun
