kind of不是在英文裡當形容詞嗎?怎麼能修飾動詞?

this was a kind of... a kind of engage people.

The audience could actually kind of take part in what was going on.

這兩句都是空英老師口說的句子,

裡面kind of不是在英文裡當形容詞嗎?怎麼能修飾動詞?

而且第一句為什麼be動詞was後又直接接一個動詞engage?

    在口語裡kind of是當副詞用。

    used when you are talking about someone or something in a general way without being very exact or definite:

    It kind of brings up an issue we talked about at the first meeting.(kind of修飾動詞brings up)

    He was kind of strange, but I liked him.(修飾動詞was,表示有點)

    a kind of ... = a type of ...

    a kind of engage people是不合文法的,你確定engage不是當形容詞用的engaged?
