An adjective is a word that describes or gives more information about a noun or pronoun. Adjectives come before the noun they modify, unless they are linked to the noun by a linking verb.


The blue car.
He walks along the rocky beach in the dark, stormy night.
The thick, soft pillow fell onto the floor.
The large black dog is barking.

A linking verb is a verb that describes a state of being or sensory experience. Some common linking verbs are to be, to look, to seem, to feel, and to smell. When the adjective is linked to the noun by a linking verb, the adjective is placed after the verb.

A very common sentence template in English is:
Subject + be + adjective.

The subject can be any person, place, or thing. Using this sentence template, you'll be able to describe objects in English.

To ask if an object has a certain characteristic or attribute, you can use the the following sentence template:
Be + subject + adjective?

To say that something does not have a characteristic, you can use the following sentence template:
Subject + be not + adjective.


I am tired.
She is happy.
Is she happy?
She is not happy.
The book is old.
The old book is interesting.
The night is dark and stormy.
He is wet and cold.

Some adjectives describe how much or how many of a noun there is, such as few, some, many, and all.

When two or more adjectives are used to describe a noun they are usually separated by the word and or a comma.

Joffre Lake
The lake is very beautiful.
