English Grammar – Adjectives

apple-greenIt seems that some people are more interesting than others when speaking or writing. Something that often calls my attention is that interesting people use adjectives wisely. For some reason, if you say “my car”, it does not sound the same as if you say “my faithful old car”. Providing details through adjectives makes your speech and conversations shine. It is true that the overuse of adjectives may cause a negative effect as well.

Adjectives are words such as: big, small, tall, short, beautiful or expensive. However, there are other types of adjectives. I like to classify them into two categories: one-word adjectives and complex adjectives. Another interesting aspect of adjectives is that participle and gerund verbs are often applied as adjectives.

Please watch the video below and you will see what I am talking about.

 

 

Adjectives in English are usually placed before the noun and it is important to mention that they do not have a plural form. There is only one form and it never changes, so you say “my big brothers” and not “my bigs brothers”.

I hope this tips are useful.

Best,

Mario
