An “adjective” is a word that describes someone or something. In other words, adjectives tell us more about nouns. If you forgot what “nouns” are, read the article about “nouns” here.
In a sentence, the adjective often stands before the “object” (“object” = noun).
Peter loves green apples. (apples = object | green = adjective)
The dog plays with the small toy. (toy = object | small = adjective)
I’ve read a new book. (book = object | new = adjective)
Adjectives also often stand after the “verb” in a sentence.
John is happy. (John = subject | is = verb | happy = adjective)
The sky looks dark. (The sky = subject | looks = verb | dark = adjective)
The shoes are expensive. (The shows = subject | are = verb | expensive = adjective)
You can also use more than one adjective in a sentence.
The beautiful red dress.
There are green and yellow apples.
My grandmother is old and wise.
