There are some words that we use to describe a thing or person, or even our feelings and thoughts. Grammarians refer to such words as adjectives.
Adjectives are defined or learned as words that modify or describe a noun. When you need to add detailed sense to describe anything, you make use of adjectives to communicate. For instance you can’t differentiate between sweet and sour fruits if there weren’t these adjectives to describe the taste of fruits.
Similarly, adjectives are useful to spark emotions and imagination. Imagine if your friend only talked about a bag he saw at the market without mentioning its color. Would you want to buy it without knowing any specific details?
Adjectives help you differentiate between opposite things while also providing information about nouns and pronouns. Not to mention, adjectives also talk about the number of certain nouns.
For example, the sentence “Eight students are absent today” tells you about the number of students absent on the day.
Adjectives are used to perform different functions in speech, which is what makes them so interesting. If you find it hard to understand the tricky grammar concepts, refer to our range of workbooks and printable worksheets for help. These will help you refine your grammar skills.
