Use adjacent in a sentence
You can't really say 'not adjacent to change' without people thinking you're making a comic remark. It would probably be understood, if you flagged up clearly enough that you were being funny, but otherwise people would just assume you didn't [ understand the word.
Strictly speaking, 'adjacent' means 'next to' or 'right beside'. You'd use it in a sentence very similarly to how you'd use 'near' ... only with 'to', not with 'by'. So, the filling station was adjacent to a truck dealership.
There is a very specialised use that has evolved in cricket commentary, when an umpire rules that a batsman is not out lbw (leg before wicket) when the replay clearly shows the batsman was out. The ball is said to be 'distinctly adjacent' ... i.e. the commentators know the umpire was wrong but they don't want to say so. They're saying it was very close to lbw, but they mean it was lbw. http://answers.yahoo.com/question/?qid=20090318042659AAkfI3g
