English Adjectives

Learning the English Adjectives is very important because its structure is used in every day conversation. The more you practice the subject, the closer you get to mastering the English language. But first we need to know what the role of Adjectives is in the structure of the grammar in English.

English Adjectives are words that describe or modify another person or thing in the sentence.

An adjective describes a noun, and usually come before the noun, in many languages adjectives change from singular to feminine and plural, but that doesn't happen in English, so it's very easy to use adjectives. You can understand the size and color of a noun just from the adjective before it.

Examples: the white house. (white here is an adjective telling us the color of the house)

The tall man (tall here is an adjective telling us the size of the man)

Also adjectives can help you know what people think about a noun (something or someone).

Examples: he is a nice person, she is a beautiful lady, it's a good lesson. (nice, beautiful and good are all adjectives showing us the opinion of others).

 

Types of Adjectives:

There are many types of adjectives, some of them express: Size (big, small, tall, short, little ...), Color (black, white, green, blue, red ...), Age (old, young ...), Origin (French, British, American ...), Time (early, late …) ...etc.
