English Language and Grammar - 'Adjectives, Nouns and Verbs - defined'
Adjectives – what are they?
Adjectives are used to modify nouns or pronouns. They are always near the noun or pronoun they are describing. They can be one word or a group of words. Adjectives can also be used with certain verbs (such as the verb "to be"). They are used to clarify the subject that is doing the action; adjectives are not used to clarify the verb. Adjectives are used to describe colour, material, shape, size, amount, price, quality, origin, personality, weight, temperature, weight, age, and direction.
There are 9 different adjective groups and the order of these adjectives is as follows:
When there are 2 or more adjectives that are from the same group "and" is placed between the 2 adjectives.
- The boat is green and red.
- The bookshop has old and new books.
When there are 3 or more adjectives from the same adjective group. Place a comma between each of the adjectives. A comma is not placed between an adjective and thenoun.
- We have a big, green, white and red boat on the canal.
- My friend lost a red, black and white scarf, if you find it please let me know.
Adjectives are placed before the noun. The form of the adjectives is the same for all types of nouns. Adjectives can be used with all forms of nouns.
Adjectives and Nouns
Usually, adjectives are placed before the noun. Adjectives are used to describe the noun.
- The little boy is cute.
- The black dog is very old.
2 or more adjectives can be used together to describe a noun.
- The big red bike outside is my new bike.
- I am going to take the long black tram to the town centre.
Nouns can be used as adjectives.
- Smokey, the cat likes his new cat igloo.
- Please close the pantry door.
When an article is used such as "a", "an" or "the", then the article is placed before the adverb.
What are comparative adjectives?
Comparative adjectives are used to compare the difference between 2 nouns, or a collective noun. Superlative adjectives are used to compare 3 or more nouns.

Adjectives and Verbs
Verbs are the most important part of speech in the English language. Verbs do a lot of work in the English language. Some are busy action verbs; others are modest helping or linking verbs. No matter what kind they are, verbs keep the English language movin' and shakin'. Action verbs tell what a person, animal or thing can do or be. Verbs also use rules for telling when something happened - in the past, the present, or the future. Being Verbs tell about something in a state of being. A noun or pronoun does not always take action. Helping verbs do not stand alone or express action. They are part of verb phrases that "help" the main verb. Helping verbs define the tense (past, present, future) or change the meaning of the main verb. Linking verbs do not show action. Instead, they connect nouns and pronouns to other information in the sentence. Irregular Verbs are verbs that don't follow the rules for changing tense.
How are adjectives used with verbs?
Sometimes the adjective is placed after a verb especially if the verb is a "linking verb". Adjectives don't describe the verb. Adjectives describe the subject that is performing the action:
- The book looks good.
- Your picture looks great. Where did you get your picture?
- The boys play football all the time.
When you use an adjective and a verb together the adjective comes after the verb. Sometimes one adjective is not enough to describe the noun or the subject that is performing the action so 2 or more adjectives can be used together.
When do you use an adjective or an adverb? Do I need to define the verb or the sentence? Do I need to define the subject that is performing the action?
Be careful how you use adjectives such as interesting, beautiful, great, wonderful, or exciting. These and many other adjectives tend to be overused adding little definition to a sentence. You can demonstrate what you are talking about by creatively using verbs, nouns and a few well-chosen adjectives.
