Adjectives are describing words. Here are a few tips to identify adjectives.

An adjective can exist in three forms: the positive, the comparative and the superlative. The word is probably an adjective, if you can add -er or -est to it. Or, if you can use more or most in front of it. The following words are all adjectives.

Adjectives can also be used with degree modifiers like very, quite or pretty.

Adjectives can be immediately followed by nouns.
