Learn English Grammar: Lesson 5 – Adjectives
An adjective is a word that describes a noun or pronoun.

Adjectives answer the questions “Which?” “How many?” “What kind?” For example, this sentence has three adjectives:

Which cat? How many pieces? What kind of chicken?
In English, adjectives can come after be or before nouns.
- after be: Ex: Canada is big.
- before noun: Ex: Canada is a big country.
- after be: Ex: Elvis Presley was very popular.
- before noun: Elvis Presley was a very popular singer.
