Hello, Grammar Exchange members!
I ran into the following sentence and had a question about how to use the word 'comfortable' in a sentence.
a. Americans have always been quite comfortable getting their food on the streets.
I was just curious about whether a gerund can be used after 'comfortable.' I know it can be used after 'comfortable', otherwise it wouldn't be written that way in a book.
But when I looked up the word 'comfortable' in dictionaries (Longman/Oxford/Macmillan/Cambridge/Collins), I couldn't find the example sentences in which 'comfortable + gerund' is used. All I can find is 'comfortable with/about sth.'
So my question here is 'with' or 'about' is omitted between 'comfortable' and 'getting' in the sentence above?
I'd like to hear your opinion about this.
Thanks in advance
