What are adjectives?

Adjectives are a part of the speech and contain words that describe a noun. These words fill in the gaps or shortcomings in our piece of writing or speech. Grammarians refer to the usage of adjectives as modifying nouns and pronouns.

We generally use adjectives when we wish to quantify or identify unique things or people. The primary purpose of using descriptive words is to enlist or state the qualities of a noun or pronoun. For instance, the silly dog, the blue water, furry coat, and lots more.

We usually place adjectives before nouns, so that makes it easy for us to spot them. But there can also be sentences that contain more than one or even multiple adjectives. However, adjectives often play more than just one role. Although we know they modify nouns, yet they can also complement linking verbs.

English language is tricky and most especially the grammar concept. We provide a range of workbooks and printable worksheets to help children understand the concepts easily. Find our resources to get the extra practice you need for refining your grammar skills.

Adjectives – Their Uses.

There are many uses of adjectives, including describing how many or how much of the nouns or pronouns you’re describing. They also help you discuss the kind of things you want, see, or have experienced, etc. For example:

Place two white chairs on the stage, please.

Here you can see that two and white serve as modifying adjectives in the sentences. We also have other kinds of adjectives, including possessive adjectives, demonstrative adjectives, and number adjectives. This helps indicate possessions, demonstrate things and persons, etc. and state the number of nouns and pronouns.
