Adjectives are an integral part of the English language. Can you guess why? It is because they bring life, vitality, interest, and information to sentences. Our speech and writing would sound rather dull and fail to spark our imagination if we do not include details in it.

Take a look at an example:

Without adjectives - "I ate cake."

With adjectives - "I ate a moist, delicious and rich chocolate cake at the café. You should try it too."

p words to describe someone

From the above examples, you can clearly see how the first sentence sounds utterly flat. It does nothing to entice our imagination or make us visualize what the writer is describing. But the complete opposite happens in the second sentence.

We can imagine the taste, exquisiteness, and quality of the cake just because of the adjectives in it.

Let’s briefly take a look at the kind of adjectives we have.

Interrogative Adjectives

We have three interrogative adjectives that help us modify nouns too. We use these adjectives to ask questions. They include whose, what, and which. For example:

  • Whose bag is this?
  • What time should I reach?
  • Which color suits you best?

Demonstrative Adjectives

The beauty of adjectives is that they’re so easy to guess by their names and determine the purpose they serve. Demonstrative adjectives help us refer to or demonstrate specific things, animals, and people. For example that, this, those and these.

adjectives beginning with p

Coordinate Adjectives

We separate coordinate adjectives with the word ‘and’ or by using a comma. Coordinate adjectives describe the same noun in a sentence. There are many sentences in which we often have to list several attributes of a noun. Take a look at an example:

The bright and sunny day was ideal for a picnic at the beach.

Bright and sunny are the two coordinate adjectives in our example above.

Possessive Adjectives

It is easy to figure by the name that possessive adjectives refer to a possession. Some examples include their, our, its, her, his, your, and my. You may have already noticed that these same possessive adjectives also serve as possessive nouns.
