Adjectives

Adjectives are words that describe nouns and pronouns, for example, pretty, happy, ugly, or smart. Adjectives usually come before the noun, as in, "That was a scary movie!"

Sometimes, adjectives follow a verb, like in the sentence, "Your baby is very cute." But in this case, the adjective still modifies the subject of the sentence (your baby), not the verb (is).

Remember, unlike in some other languages, adjectives have only one form in English. They don't have a singular and plural form or a masculine and feminine form. For instance, you wouldn't say, "Those girls are beautifuls." Even though there is more than one girl, you'd still say, "Those girls are beautiful." Adjectives look the same no matter what noun they describe.

There are also adjectives of emotion, or adjectives that are used to describe how someone feels. Adjectives of emotion often end in "ed," just like excited and inspired do. Adjectives of emotion often follow the verb "be," like if Bob says he is excited.
