What are adjectives?

Have you ever read sentences with adjectives like

  • big, round eyes
  • tattered pages
  • lovely dress

Now imagine the same nouns in complete sentences without the describing words. The text wouldn’t be as interesting, and more importantly, you will feel the need for specific details. This is why we have adjectives. Adjectives are describing words that add meaning and imagery to a written piece.

We use adjectives to add sense to a noun or pronoun by describing its traits and qualities. We can identify adjectives by wondering if a word answers the following questions: ‘What kind?’, ‘Which one?’ and ‘How many?

Let’s have a look at a few examples.

  • She prefers fancy ’ In this sentence, the adjective answers the question of ‘What Kind?’
  • Give me a white pair of earrings. The adjective used in this sentence answers the ‘Which one?’
  • He invited all. This adjective answers the question of ‘How many?’

That is not all about adjectives. To help students grasp grammatical concepts easily, we provide a whole range of workbooks and printable worksheets.

It is also important to understand the correct placement of adjectives. Typically, we see adjectives placed before a noun or pronoun, but that is not the rule. We can also place adjectives after the noun or pronouns we wish to describe. Learn with the help of examples given below:

  • His new car is more spacious.
  • Is Isabelle studious?
