QUICK CONCEPT REVIEW

  • A word that describes a noun or pronoun is called adjective. For example, a small child, a black cat. In these phrases 'small' and 'black' are adjectives.
  • Anytime you describe something, you are using an adjective.
  • To learn to describe various senses such as sight, sound, taste and touch as accurate as possible, we use adjectives.
  • This is how adjectives can help you. You will be able to express yourself better using them.

Here are a few adjectives to help you describe better.

An honest man, a beautiful girl, a green balloon, a red car, a blind man, a tall man, little juice in the glass, an intelligent boy, sour milk, sweet mangoes.  

TYPE OF ADJECTIVE

(a) Adjective of quality: They ask the question ?of what kind? from the noun.

Example: A red shirt.                               

 What kind of shirt?A red shirt

Example: She is a beautiful princess.

What kind of princess?                                    

Beautiful                                

The grapes are sour.  

(b) Adjective of quantity: They ask the question how many? or how much? from their noun.                

Example:

There are three men.               

How many men?Three   

There is some sugar left.   

How much sugar? some.

(c) Demonstrative adjective: Adjective which points to a person, place or thing is called a demonstrative adjective.

 

 

ADJECTIVES ARE OF THREE DEGREES

Positive                        Comparative             Superlative

Big                               Bigger                          Biggest

Strong                         Stronger                    Strongest

These degrees of comparison help us to describe things more clearly and accurately.  

 

CERTAIN COMMON RULES

  • Positive degree is used to describe the quality of a person or thing. For example: The man is tall. The cat is black.
  • Comparative degree is used when you make a comparison between two persons or things. For example: He is taller than you. She is more beautiful than her sister.
  • Superlative degree is used to compare more than two things or sets of things. Example: He is the tallest boy in the class. She is the most beautiful of all.  

 

Important Tip

To make comparative forms, we usually add the ending ? er to one- syllable adjectives and ? est to make their superlative forms. For adjectives with three or more syllables, we usually add more/ less and most/ least.
