What will I learn from the lesson adjectives?

During this lesson learn what adjectives are and how to use them in sentences. The last part shows a list of adjectives they can be used for.

What are adjectives?

An adjective can add information about a noun by standing immediately before it:        

              A big dog was guarding the house.     (Big = adjective dog - noun)

              The new baby was very cute.      (new = adjective baby - noun)

              startling discoveries.      (startling = adjective discoveries - noun)

Examples of how to use adjectives

When I arrived at my friends new house, they had a big dog, which was called Samson and it was barking loudly because it was lonely.

The words that are used in the example above big and lonely are adjectives.

The adjectives that are used in the example modify the nouns. They make the meaning more specific.

Adjectives can add information to a noun

An adjective can add information about a noun by being linked to it by a verb:

              The dog is big, but is is very friendly (big is the adjective)

              The road seemed long (long is the adjective)

              It became obvious

The adjectives above also add information about the nouns. by using them this way, the adjective is the verb's complement while the noun is the subject .
