An adjective is a word that modifies a noun or pronoun. An adjective describes the noun or pronoun that follows it.
There are several kinds of adjectives:
Predicate adjectives are presented after a linking verb and modify the subject of the sentence. Predicate adjectives do not appear before the noun or pronoun they modify as most adjectives do. Instead they are found in the predicate of the sentence. The predicate of the sentence explains what is being stated about the subject or it contains the action of the sentence in relation to the subject.
Articles are also considered to be adjectives. Articles are placed before the nouns or pronouns they modify. Common articles include a, an, and the.
Possessive adjectives are possessive pronouns placed before nouns they modify. Examples of possessive adjectives are her, our, their, and your.
Demonstrative adjectives (this, that, these, those) identify or express the relative position of a noun in time or space. Demonstrative adjectives are placed before all other adjectives in a noun phrase.
An indefinite adjective is used to describe nouns in a non-specific way. Some examples of indefinite adjectives are each, every, few, some, many, several, all, and none.
