Are these sentences correct:
[color=red]1) I am not foolish to trust him.
[color=indigo]2) I am not a fool to trust him.
Do they mean:
a. It is true that I trust him, but that doesn’t mean I am foolish/a fool.
b. I don’t trust him. It would be foolish of me to do that.
I don’t know if the sentences are OK for a NES
I would say
11) I am not so foolish to trust him.
12) I am not such a fool to trust him.
To me, what you say should have ‘as’ so that it conforms to the so … as and the such … as structures.
- I am not so foolish as to trust him.
- I am not such a fool as to trust him.
(I’d like comments if my observation is not correct)
I would suggest -
Not so foolish that I would trust him.
Not such a fool that I would trust him.
Yes, that is ‘so/such … that’ structure although it calls for another clause.
