How to identify adjectives
Posted by Manjusha.
Adjectives are describing words. Here are a few tips to identify adjectives.
An adjective can exist in three forms: the positive, the comparative and the superlative. The word is probably an adjective, if you can add –er or –est to it. Or, if you can use more or most in front of it. The following words are all adjectives.
Adjectives can be immediately followed by nouns.
Identify the adjectives in the following sentences.
1. She is a nice person.
2. Suman has such a sweet voice.
3. Megha is perhaps the most industrious woman I know.
4. Krishna is cleverer than most boys his age.
5. Amar has won a prestigious award.
6. Ann has a lovely voice.
Nice, sweet, industrious, cleverer, prestigious, lovely
