What are adjectives?

In grammar, we define adjectives as members of a group of words that modify a noun or pronoun. They do this by either describing a quality of the particular word or by answering questions about it like ‘what kind?’, ‘which one?’ or ‘how many?

Adjectives usually provide more information about the nouns and pronouns in a text by describing its traits. You can think of adjectives as ‘describing words’. For example, you can describe a joke using the adjective ‘funny’ to suggest that it causes fun or laughter.

Some other examples to help you spot adjectives are:

  • “Please pass me the largest piece of cake.” The adjective that the writer uses in this sentence answers the question of ‘which?’

“This is one of the oldest books in our school library.” The adjective here describes the ‘kind’ of a book.

We typically place adjectives before a noun or pronoun, as you see in the above mentioned examples. However, that is not the rule. Sometimes we describe nouns and pronouns later in the sentence or even immediately after.

For example, ‘the seats available’ uses the adjective right after the noun. In another example: ‘the sandwich tastes gross’, we have placed the adjective a word after the noun.

English grammar can be tricky and confusing at times. You can take help from our range of workbooks and printable worksheets to refine your concepts and skills.

If you understand the above examples, you should quickly test yourself by answering the following quiz on adjectives.
