Top : ADJECTIVES

Articles:
  • Adjectives Used as Adverbs - Adjectives can closely resemble adverbs. Some words can either be adjective or adverb if you do not correctly change the word. You also need to know the part-of-speech of the word, and understand how to use the word correctly in the sentence.
  • Cautions in Using Adjectives - This and that are the only adjectives that have a plural form. These and those are plural and you must use them with plural nouns.
  • Classification of Adjectives - Adjectives are divided into two general classes: 1) descriptive or qualifying adjectives and 2) definitive or limiting adjectives.
  • Comparative Degree - When the adjective refers to an object that possesses more of a quality than another object, it is in the comparative degree.
  • Definitive Adjectives - A definitive adjective points out or tells how much or how many (i.e. these, two, the, a, that, many)
  • Degrees of Adjectives - You can compare adjectives in three quick steps. These three steps are called the degrees of comparison. Each degree has a name: positive degree; comparative degree; and superlative degree.
  • Descriptive Adjectives - A descriptive adjective describes or names some quality of the object expressed by the noun or pronoun (i.e. weird, blue, German).
  • How to Compare Adjectives - To compare adjectives, add er to the positive to form the comparative degree; add est to the positive to form the superlative degree.
  • Inflections of Adjectives - Adjectives undergo a certain change of form to express comparison. In some languages, adjectives have different forms to specify number, gender, and case.
  • Limiting Adjectives - Limiting adjectives include the following kinds of words: 1) The articles, the and a (or an); and 2) numeral adjectives.
  • Numeral Adjectives - Numeral adjectives are divided into two classes: 1) cardinals and 2) ordinals.
  • Positive Degree - When the adjective names some quality possessed by the noun, and does not denote the degree, the adjective is in the positive degree.
  • Possessive Adjectives - Possessive adjectives are the possessive forms of imiting adjectives, such as: my, your, his, her, its, our, their, andwhose, when these words are used as adjectives.
  • Proper Adjectives - We call adjectives derived from proper nouns as proper adjectives. You should always begin a proper adjective with a capital letter.
