What is an adjective?

An adjective is a word that describes a noun or pronoun. It can tell us what something looks like, what it feels like, its smell, sound, taste, size, shape, and more. Adjectives usually go in front of the noun they are describing. For example:

  • The big dog barked.
  • The red dress was beautiful.
  • I’m so tired!
  • The red rose is beautiful.
