GRAMMAR TIP:What Are Adjectives?
In grammar, an adjective is a word whose main syntactic role is to qualify a noun or noun phrase, giving more information about the object signified. Adjectives are one of the traditional eight English parts of speech, though linguists today distinguish adjectives from words such as determiners that were formerly considered to be adjectives. In this paragraph, "traditional" is an adjective, and in the preceding paragraph, "main" and "more" are. Most but not all languages have adjectives. Those that do not typically use words of another part of speech, often verbs, to serve the same semantic function; for example, such a language might have a verb that means "to be big", and would use a construction analogous to "big-being house" to express what English expresses as "big house".

Adjectives are an important part of the English language and are one of the first things students learn. Usually beginners start learning adjectives as vocabulary words in the very first course and should be able to master simple sentences with nouns, subjects, and adjectives in a relatively short amount of time. Adjectives give students the opportunity to describe people, places, and things and thus compose more complex sentences. Luckily there are an endless number of things that students encounter in their daily lives that they can practice describing in class and for homework assignments. You can even adapt the classic game “I Spy” for some fun practice using adjectives.
