Seeing examples of adjectives is a great way to learn what an adjective is.
Sentence diagramming can teach you what an adjective does.
Sentence diagramming is a visual way to show how the words in a sentence are related to each other.
When you see them diagrammed, it's easy to see that adjectives modify nouns and pronouns.
They go on a slanted line below the noun or pronoun that they modify.
You'll see an example sentence diagram below. If you've never done any sentence diagramming before, this is probably going to look scary.
Try not to get overwhelmed. If you learn diagramming with any of my books or programs, you learn this in an easy, step-by-step way!
Adjectives can also act as predicate adjectives.
This kind of adjective only comes after a linking verb, and it describes the subject of the sentence.
