The hot sauce packets at the fast food restaurant called Taco Bell have cute sentences printed on them. On one that I just got, it reads:
I'M YOUR MAIN SQUEEZE.
ENTRE NOUS, C'EST DU SÉRIEUX.
I'm reading "du" as the partitive article, but that means that "sérieux" is a noun. Can "C'est du + [adjective]" ever happen?
On wordreference, the entry for "sérieux" has many entries for sérieux being an adjective, but only one entry for it being a noun; this makes me wonder if "sérieux" in the sentence on my hot sauce is in fact an adjective.
- Is "sérieux" an adjective, or a noun, in "C'est du sérieux"?
- Can "C'est du + [adjective]" ever happen?
