Advanced Description

This is is an experimental feature. Please report any issues.

In German, genug is used to indicate that there is an adequate amount of something. It can be used in various contexts, such as food, money, time, and resources. For example, if someone asks you if you have enough money for a purchase, you can reply with 'Ja, ich habe genug Geld.' (Yes, I have enough money.)

Genug can also be used to express satisfaction or contentment with a situation. For instance, if you are full after a meal, you can say 'Ich bin genug satt.' (I am sufficiently full.) Similarly, if you have completed a task and are satisfied with the result, you can say 'Das ist genug für heute.' (That's enough for today.)

It is worth noting that genug can be modified by other words to emphasize the degree of sufficiency or insufficiency. For example, sehr genug (very enough) means more than enough, while nicht genug (not enough) means insufficient.
