Adjective + of
We often use adjectives of feelings with of.
Words like proud, fond, jealous, ashamed are used with of – then the subject. For example:
“My son just won his first karate tournament! I’m so proud of him!
|“I’m proud of you son!”|
“Robert’s co-worker Henry always gets more interesting assignments than him. Robert is jealous of him.”
“I ate 3 pieces of cake at lunch, I’m ashamed of myself now.”
