1.5) What are “Adjectives” for?
Adjectives are describing words. Adjectives describe nouns and pronouns. (Old, green, and cheerful are examples of adjectives.)
An adjective usually comes directly before the noun or pronoun it describes (or modifies, as they say).
When adjectives are used like this, they’re called attributive adjectives.
An adjective can come after the noun. In this case, adjectives are followed by linking verbs (was, look and seems) to describe the noun or the pronoun.
Jack was old.
It looks green.
He seems cheerful.
Sometimes, an adjective comes immediately after a noun.
the Princess Royal
the best seats available
the worst manners imaginable
