Adjectives- what are they?

Adjectives are among the most important language tools. They bring life and imagery to text while also providing vital information. You wouldn’t be able to imagine what certain texts are trying to convey if there were no adjectives.

However, adjectives and other grammar tools that are a part of speech can be really confusing at times. For this reason, we provide children with help through our summer workbooks and printable worksheets.

While ‘adjectives’ is a fun topic to study, it is also a vast one. There are approximately 13 types of adjectives, and studying each one of them can confuse children. To help you out, let’s briefly discuss a few common ones with examples.

Descriptive adjectives

These types of adjectives modify a noun or pronoun by simply describing its quality or trait. For example:

  • I want to buy a gold
  • She loves pink
  • We had some delicious

Possessive adjectives

Possessive adjectives express ownership and possessiveness. For example:

  • I will spend the weekend with my
  • She is living with her
  • Don’t touch his

Demonstrative adjectives

Demonstrative adjectives are adjectives that are used to describe the position of a noun or pronoun in time or space. For example:

  • Sit in that car and wait.
  • Are those books yours?
  • I will never forget that
  • This is not the time to joke.
