Modifiers: Adjectives

AdjectivesAdjectives are categorized as one of the eight main parts of speech.

They are words, phrases, or clauses that modify nouns or words and phrases behaving like nouns, such as Gerunds. By adding pieces of description, they are an important tool to completing a picture for readers and listeners. The job can be done with different adjectives, some as basic as a cursor and some as complex as a clause, itself.

At right, in the menu, are some general categories by which to break them down further for discussion and study.
