What are adjectives?
An adjective is a word that describes a noun (the name of a thing or a place).
'It was a terrible book.'
• The word 'terrible' is an adjective. It tells us what the book (the noun) was like.
'The book she read on holiday was terrible.' or 'She read a terrible book on holiday.'
• Adjectives can come before or after a noun.
• Try putting adjectives in different places in your sentences to make your writing more interesting.
'She had a mouldy, smelly, overpriced sandwich.'
• If you want to describe a noun in detail, you can use more than one adjective.
• When you have a list of adjectives like this, separate them with commas.
