Usage notesEdit

  • This adjective can only be used predicatively, not attributively. Like glad, it expresses a propositional attitude.
  • This word actually agrees with the subject, but in meaning, it essentially describes the verb. It is often mistaken to be an adverb.
  • It is used with a verb describing an activity to show that the subject likes, liked, will or would like to execute that activity.
    Rád zpíval.He liked singing (literally, He, glad, sang. )
    Raději se předvádí.She likes better to show off.
