What Is An Adjective?


The Definition Is - "A Word Which (Defines a Noun) OR ( Modify / Change A Noun ) Is Called Adjective"


Lets Start The Explanation But First We Should Know
What Is A Noun? - The Defintion Of The Noun Is - > "Noun Is The Name Of Place , Person Or Anything " - It Means The Name OF Anything Is Noun - For Example:Your Name , Your Father Name , Your City Name , Your Country Name , Your School Name etc. So as you can see they all have their own names that's why they are noun. i hope now if anyone asks you what is a noun so you can tell ("Noun Is The Name Of Anything"). Till now we have understood what is the noun. its time to see how does an "Adjective (Defines A Noun ,Change/Modify A Noun)"

1) Defines A Noun :

For Ex: "A Nice Book"
Nice ← Adjectives
Book ← Noun
As you can see in this example sentence - "A Nice Book" - the word " Nice " is an Adjectives And the word " Book " is a Noun. so you may be asking yourself why the word nice is adj and what it is doing here? well the answer of this question is (The Word Nice) Is prasing or telling good thing about the noun (Which Is Book) if you still confuse don't worry take one more example - "A beautiful Girl" In this sentence beautiful is telling good about the a girl so that's why this word is (adj) ok!! so this is how adj defines a noun

2) Modify / Change Noun


intelligent ← Adjectives
person ← Noun
In this example sentence intelligent is an Adjective (intelligent -> adjective) And Person is a (Noun) and the word intelligent is modifying a noun because it is totally changing the meaning or sense why because if we say "A stupid person" so the word stupid is actually changing the whole meaning / Sense in your mind means whenever we need help so will first think 2 or 3 times before taking help from this person but if i say "An intelligent person" this also changes the meaning / sense in our mind about this person so this change is called modify A noun



Types Of Adjectives:

1) Adjectives Of Quality
2) Adjectives of Quantity
3) Demonstrative - Adj
4) Interrogative Adjectives
7) Possessive Adjectives
8) Adjectives Of Number

1) Adjectives Of Quality

The Formal / Proper Definition Is "It Describes The Quality of Noun"
Or In Easy Words We can say that it praises the Noun / Or Tell the good things about the Noun
For Example : A Beautiful Place
Beautiful 'Adjectives'
Place← Noun
So In This Ex Beautiful Is Adjectives Of Quality Because The Word Beautiful is telling the Quality of A Noun (Means telling good thing about the place) so whenever we need to show the Quality of Noun we will use it . if you are still confuse don't worry iam going to give you one more ex -
" Ali is handsome " Ali-> Noun , handsome->Adj (because the word "handsome" is telling us that ali is nice looking person / And showing the quality of Ali)

2) Adjectives Of Quantity


Many ← Adjectives of Quantity
Students ← Noun
As You Can see in this Example Many Is the Adjectives of Quantity And Students Are Noun And if we say I have Students this is also right but in order to show the quantity or number we have used the word "Many". For your better understading iam giving you one more ex Which is
"She has much water"
In this sentence (much: is showing the quantity) and the (water: is noun) so this is how we use it. now you may be thinking what are the words to show the quantity or number well don't worry about it because below i have given the words
