An adjective is a word that describes or modifies a noun or pronoun. Adjectives can be used to provide additional information about a noun or pronoun, such as its size, shape, color, or other characteristics. Adjectives can come before or after the nouns they modify, such as “the big dog” or “the dog is big”.

Examples of adjectives include:

  • “happy” (describing a person’s emotions)
  • “red” (describing the color of an object)
  • “small” (describing the size of an object)
  • “delicious” (describing the taste of food)
  • “loud” (describing the volume of a sound)
  • “old” (describing the age of a person or object)
  • “beautiful” (describing the appearance of a person or object)
  • “intelligent” (describing a person’s intelligence)
  • “happy” (describing a person’s emotions)

Adjectives can also be used to compare nouns or pronouns, using words such as “more” or “less” to indicate degrees of comparison. For example, “he is taller than his brother” or “this is the most expensive car”. Some adjectives such as “good” “bad” “big” “small” have irregular forms when indicating degrees of comparison.

Adjectives can also be used to describe a noun in a certain order, such as “the red car” the adjective “red” comes before the noun “car” but in “the car is red”, the adjective comes after the verb “is”.

In short, adjectives are words that add information about a noun or pronoun, providing more details about its characteristics, size, shape, color and more, and they can be used in different ways to describe a noun or pronoun.
