Chapter 28. Grammar > Adjectives

Adjectives

Adjectives are words that describe or modify a person, place, or thing. Articles such as a, an, and the are adjectives. So are words like tall, solid, and cold.

A group of words containing a subject and verb may act as an adjective. These are called an adjective clause. For example, "My brother, who is much older than I am, is a psychologist." If the subject and verb are removed from an adjective clause, an adjective phrase results. For example, "He is the man who is keeping my family fed."
