Adjectives – What they are

Adjectives are descriptive words that help modify the nouns and pronouns in our sentences. They’re the words that help us inform the readers about the quality, state, attributes, etc. of the noun or pronoun under discussion.

Extra details always help readers grasp the message better while visualizing what the writer is conveying. Do you know why details of your best friend’s adventurous trek up the mountain or your cousin’s beach wedding always excite you?

They sound utterly thrilling because of the details that the writers or speakers provide you through descriptive words. If your friend tells you, “I went jet skiing in the shallow waters of the Bahamas. Trust me, the rush of adrenaline and the majestic view of the life underwater was the most exhilarating experience I’ve had.”

Can you guess why the above example was delightful to read? The descriptive words including shallow, majestic, and exhilarating, etc. created a sense of excitement in the senses. This is just what adjectives do with their power of description.

Now that you know what adjectives are all about, let’s try a little quiz to test your skills.
