What are Adjectives?
We use adjectives to intensify and customize a noun or a pronoun. It provides an extra information to readers about the reference of a noun or a pronoun. We use it right before the noun or pronoun that change it. In case, if you need to describe noun or a pronoun, you will use one or more one adjectives. If you are writing a noun before another noun, you will consider it with its adjectives. Students will sometimes mix up adjectives and verbs. If we remember that the goal of this part of speech focus on giving more detail about the noun and not what the noun is doing, it becomes a great deal easier for students. Lets take a look at an example sentence: The multi-colored balloon floated over the roof top. In this particular sentence the noun is the balloon. The description of the verb tells us it is multi-colored that is the adjective. We do not want to confuse this with the action the balloon is taking (floated), that is the verb. There are different types of adjectives. We use all of them in respective sentences. They include: descriptive, possessive, numeral, proper, interrogative, proper, adjectives of quantity, and demonstratives.
How To Use Adjectives
An adjective is a word that we use to describe a noun. It qualifies a noun and describes the importance of the noun. That is why we use adjectives to modify a noun. Here, we will learn different uses of adjectives to specifies the noun well. There is an invariable use of adjectives in the English language. They do not change their form that relies upon the status of the gender or number of the noun. For example, this a cold mango, or those are cold mangoes. If you want to strengthen adverbs, use adverbs very or really in front of the adjective. You will do this to focus on or strengthen the meaning of adjectives. For example, this is a very cold mango, and those are some hot mangoes.
Usually, in the English language, we add adjectives at the beginning of a modified noun. For example, the blue Ferrari cost me expensive, and the fast-green car drove away. You can add adjectives at the end of the sentence and with sensing verbs such as to seem, like to be, to look and to taste. For example;
Switzerland is beautiful.
I do not think it seems nice at all.
You look tired, etc.
