Adjectives are descriptive words, with which we can quantify and identify individuals and unique things. We rely on parts of the speech in the English Language to refine and give structure to our sentences.
We can place sentences before our nouns or pronouns or even after them, depending on your sentence type. However, you can also use more than one adjective in a sentence. After all, being descriptive and detailed helps the readers visualize the scenes or information that the writer is describing.
Let’s briefly take a look at the kind of adjectives we have.
It is easy to figure by the name that possessive adjectives refer to a possession. Some examples include their, our, its, her, his, your and my. You may have already noticed that these same possessive adjectives also serve as possessive nouns.
We separate coordinate adjectives with the word ‘and’ or by using a comma. Coordinate adjectives describe the same noun in a sentence. There are many sentences in which we often have to list several attributes of a noun. Take a look at an example:
The bright and sunny day was ideal for a picnic at the beach.
Bright and sunny are the two coordinate adjectives in our example above.
