Adjectives are descriptive words. The word 'yellow' in the phrase 'the yellow balloon' is descriptive of the balloon's color. It tells you more about the balloon. Without adjectives, stories would be very boring. Here are three examples of adjectives: big, dangerous and black. How might a sentence be improved by using these three adjectives? Let's see.

  • The black sky hung low over the big, dangerous castle
  • The dangerous bend was covered in black ice and the big truck skidded
  • "You look tasty", said the dangerous monster, his black eyes wide and big mouth grinning grotesquely

With these examples, you can almost picture the scene in your mind. Do this elementary school English quiz and perhaps you'll also learn a few new adjectives.
