GRAMMAR LESSONS / ADJECTIVES
Adjectives are words we use to describe a noun. They usually come before it:
a big, red, boring book
The noun in this phrase is book and the adjectives tell us what size it is (big), what color it is (red) and what we think of it (boring).
Adjectives never change their form; they are always the same:
the ugly woman and the ugly man
the ugly football team and the ugly goalkeeper
the ugly dog and the ugly scenery
Common types of adjectves are:
