An adjective is a part of speech which modifies a noun, usually making its meaning more specific. Adjectives are used in a predicative or attributive manner. In some languages, attributive adjectives precede the noun. This is the case in the Germanic languages, to which the English language belongs. In other languages, e.g. the Roman languages, the adjective follows the noun. However, adjective is not a universal word class; in other words, some languages do not have any adjectives. This book focuses on adjectives and their usage in everyday English. Its purpose is very simple: to help you understand all about adjectives quickly, easily and thoroughly. Each chapter gives you all the clear explanations, simple rules, correct usage and plenty of examples.
