What is an Adjective?
An adjective is a word that describes a noun in a sentence.
Examples of using an adjective in a sentence:
- The box is large.
- The shiny penny.
- The sun shone bright in the blue sky.
- A six-year-old child.
If a group of words containing a subject and verb acts as an adjective, it is called an Adjective Clause.
Example of using a subject and verb as an adjective:
- My sister, who is much older than I am, is a writer.
Adjectives are used in poetry to create different effects, either for a reflective description of the noun or to create more drama within a sentence description.
