Adjectives are words that describe nouns. They tell the size, color, or quality of something: a big room, the red car, four interesting books. Here are some commonly used adjectives:

               beautiful                fast                          loud                tall
               big                         funny                      old                   terrible
               black                      handsome               quiet                thirsty
               boring                    interesting               right                ugly
               careful                    late                         sad                   young
               careless                  little                        short                white
               early                       long                        slow                 wrong

Just like nouns, adjectives can follow the predicate. They most often come after forms of the verbs to be and to become :

  • My sister was very sad.
  • The horse suddenly became thirsty.
  • My grandfather is old.
