Using Adjectives

An adjective is a word which clarifies or adds meaning to a noun. Such words like beautiful, tall, sharp, black are adjectives. They are adjectives because they add meaning/clarity to nouns.

Remember, a noun is a name of anything. Eg Woman, boy, Cat, Emmy, etc.

However, there are instances where more adjectives may have to be used in one sentence. This is what brings us to the order of adjectives. Where more adjectives are used in a sentence, a particular order must be adhered to.



Articles: a, an, the

Demonstratives: this, that, these, those

Possessives: my, your, his, her, etc.

Quantifiers: (a) few, some, many, etc.

Numbers: one, two, three, etc.
