Hey Guys! It's confused english here! I was wondering if you could answer this question.
In this sentence - what would rubbish be used as? A noun, verb, or adjective?
Sue Ellen was talking rubbish when she told people about the story.
Please answer this question! Thank you!

  • English -

    Well, it's slang, but in structure, "rubbish" is being used as a direct object in that sentence -- so it's used as a noun.

  • english -

    Oh, i thought it was an adjective. Thank you!
