What are adjectives?

Adjectives are words used to modify nouns. They describe a person or thing’s qualities, characteristics and attributes. The adjective should always agree with the noun it modifies in number and gender.

Adjectives can be placed after the noun they modify, before the noun they modify, or before and after the noun they modify.
