An adjective is a word that describes nouns. It gives us some information about an object’s size, shape, age, color, origin or material.

Adjectives tell us how much; how many of something we’re talking about, which thing we want passed to, or which kind of something we want.

  • It’s a big table.
  • He is tall.
  • We’ve been teachers for five years.
  • My coffee table is beautiful.

Adjectives come in three forms: absolute, comparative, and superlative. Absolute adjectives describe something in its own right.

  • cool guy
  • messy desk

Comparative adjectives, make a comparison between two or more things.

  • Richard is richer than his neighbor.
  • John is taller than Nick.

Superlative adjectives indicate that something has the highest degree of the quality in question.

  • The highest mountain.
  • The coolest guy in the room is Peter.
