Adjectives

Many people get adjectives and adverbs confused. Adjectives are words that are used to describe a noun in a sentence, while adverbs are used to modify adverbs, adjectives or verbs. Here is a list of adjectives:

fast
brown
long
short
pink

In the sentence “The dog is brown.”. Brown is the adjective because it described what color the dog is.

There are comparative adjectives and superlative adjectives. Comparative adjectives are used to compare two different nouns or a collective noun. For example, “The dog is older than the cat.”, older is the comparing the age of the cat and the dog. Therefore older would be a comparing adjective.

Superlative adjectives are used to compare three or more different nouns. For example, “The dog is the oldest do in the pound”. The adjective oldest is the superlative adjective because it is comparing the dog with all the other dogs in the pound.

Comparing adjectives by the type of adjective that you have in a sentence is easy. Just look at the ending of the adjective. Usually an adjective that ends with -est is superlative, while and adjective ending with -er is comparative.
