Adjectives

Adjectives are words that describe nouns. They tell the size, color, or quality of something: a big room, the red car, four interesting books. Here are some commonly used adjectives:

beautifulfastloudtall
bigfunnyoldterrible
blackhandsomequietthirsty
boringinterestingrightugly
carefullatesadyoung
carelesslittleshortwhite

Just like nouns, adjectives can follow the predicate. They most often come after forms of the verbs to be and to become:

  • My sister was very sad.
  • The horse suddenly became thirsty.
  • My grandfather is old.
