What are adjectives?

Do you wonder what adjectives are and how you can use them in your written text and speech? Let us help you learn about adjectives in this article.

Adjectives are a part of the speech that is comprised of descriptive words. We use these to describe a thing, place, or person. Adjectives describe or modify both nouns and pronouns. If we didn’t use adjectives in our text at all, people wouldn’t find reading interesting even slightly.

Hence, the main purpose of using adjectives is to tell people how delicious or disastrous your meal was, how adventurous or relaxing your vacation was etc. We know grammar has tricky concepts and it takes time to perfect these. You can use our printable worksheets to strengthen your skills.

Intricacies of Adjectives

It wouldn’t be wrong to describe adjectives as information gatherers. Do you know why? The simple reason is that adjectives primarily provide detailed information about a noun’s color, age, type, size, material, origin, and lots more.

Want to take a look at some examples? Let’s list some down for you below!

  • We have an English table in the breakfast room
  • I love the grey rattan furniture in your garden
  • This dress has a very soft fabric

As you can see in the examples above, the bold words are adjectives because they describe the quality of the noun right after.

Now that you know what adjectives are all about, let’s quickly test how well you have grasped the concept.
