    Adjective

    4.1 Introduction

    Let us consider the following sentences:

  • Netaji was a brave patriot.
  • The pot consists much milk.
  • I have two hands.
  • The first boy was given a prize.
  • I have got this book.
  • Any man can do this.
  • Each student get a book.
  • Here ‘brave’ qualifies the noun ‘Netaji’/ ‘patriot’. So it is an adjective of quality. ‘much’ expresses quantity of the noun ‘milk’. So it is an adjective of quantity. ‘Two’ denotes the number of the noun ‘hands’. So it is a numeral adjective. ‘First’ expresses the definitive position of the noun ‘boy’. So it a ordinal adjective. ‘This’ demonstrates ‘book’. So it is demonstrative adjective. ‘Any’ is indefinite adjectives quantifying ‘man’ and it comes from indefinite pronouns. ‘Each’ is distributive adjective because it shows separation. Here we provide more examples of Adjectives:

  • Adjective of quantity: little, much, no, enough, all, any, half, whole, etc.
  • Adjective of quality: good, bad, ugly, large, brave, foolish, etc.
  • Adjective of number: one, two, three, few, many, all, some, first, fourth, more, etc.
  • Demonstrative adjectives: same, such, that, those, this those, etc.
  • Distributive adjectives: who, what, which, whose, etc.
  • Indefinite adjectives: one, some, certain, etc.
