A noun is a person, place or thing. An adjective is a word that tells more about a noun. It describes a noun. Adding adjectives to your writing makes it more vivid and interesting. When you read, it is important that you form pictures in your mind based on the words in the story. Adjectives are what help you to form the pictures. Comparing with Adjectives Some adjectives compare nouns. There are two ways that these adjectives are formed. When you compare 2 things, you use the word more or less, or you add –er to the end of the adjective. When you compare 3 or more things, you use the word most or least, or you add –est to the end of the adjective. Compare these sentences: The boy sat. Can you picture that? Not really. There’s not enough detail. The boy sat on the musty old couch. The words musty and old are adjectives. You wrinkle your nose as you picture him sitting on that yucky couch. Jazz is more popular than rock ‘n roll. Randy is shorter than Nicole. Buy the vase that is the least expensive. This is the biggest tree in my neighborhood.

An adjective is a word that describes a noun (person, place, or thing). It can come before or after the noun. It can tell which one, what kind, or how many. There are also identifier adjectives: this, that, these, and those. An adverb is a word that describes a verb (action word). It can come before or after the verb. An adverb tells when, where, how, and to what extent the action occurs. First, locate the nouns. Then, find the adjectives in these sentences: A beautiful painting hung over her massive stone fireplace. Nouns: painting and fireplace Adjectives: beautiful (describes painting); stone and massive (describe fireplace) • When the action occurs: She will talk tomorrow. • Where the action occurs: He cooks here. • How the action occurs: She sews quickly. • To what extent the action occurs: He walks more slowly than the others. Many, but not all, adverbs end in –ly. She smiled sweetly. He easily pushed the cart. The mouse’s door was so tiny I couldn’t even fit my right hand through it.

Modifiers–Adjectives Visit www.newpathlearning.com for Online Learning Resources. © Copyright NewPath Learning. All Rights Reserved. 92-4072 An adjective is a word that modifies, or tells about, a noun or pronoun. I prefer the blue T-shirt to the green one. A proper adjective is formed from a proper noun and always capitalized. Is that the German flag or the Austrian flag? (German is based on Germany and Austrian is based on Austria.) A compound adjective is when two or more words are used as a descriptive phrase directly in front of the noun it modifies. The words must be used together to modify the noun. Compound adjectives are always hyphenated. She signed a six-month lease for the apartment. Note: It’s not a six lease, and it’s not a month lease; it’s a six-month lease. Since you need both words together to describe the noun lease , six month is hyphenated. She signed an apartment lease for six months. (There’s no hyphen because the words come after the noun lease .) A predicate adjective always comes after the noun it describes. It always follows a linking verb. The linking verbs are forms of the verb to be (is, are, was, were, etc.) Other common linking verbs are appear, become, feel, grow, keep, look, prove, remain, seem, smell, sound, stay, taste, and turn . The linking verbs are underlined in the examples below: The baby appears hungry. (hungry describes the baby) We were too tired to argue. (tired describes the pronoun we) Her song sounds beautiful. (beautiful describes the song) A demonstrative adjective is a word such as this, that, these, and those used to describe nouns. Did Sally like that movie or this one? (that and this both describe movies) Are these the socks you’re looking for? (these describe the socks) LEASE

There are five types of nouns. Singular noun: names one person, place, or thing The lifeguard rescued the boy.

Proper noun: names a specific person, place, or thing and is always capitalized Jack Grady is in Mrs. Bronson’s eighth grade homeroom. Did you visit Atlantic City last weekend?

The bear’s front leg was injured. (the leg belongs to the bear) The Jacobsons’ daughter will graduate from high school this year.

Types of Pronouns Visit www.newpathlearning.com for Online Learning Resources. © Copyright NewPath Learning. All Rights Reserved. 92-4074 A pronoun is a word that takes the place of a noun. A nominative case pronoun can be the subject of a sentence: I, you, he, she, we, they, and it. They just bought a new car! Objective case pronouns cannot be the subject of a sentence: me, him, her, them, and us. Did you try to text me? The pronoun you is unique because it can serve as the subject or object in a sentence. A possessive pronoun shows ownership. Never put an apostrophe in a possessive pronoun. Are these books hers? The cat scratched its ear. A reflexive pronoun ends with “self” or “ selves”: yourself, himself, herself, myself, itself, ourselves, and themselves. Always name the person before you refer back to him or her with a reflexive pronoun. A reflexive pronoun can never be the subject of a sentence. Right: Terry painted the deck all by himself. (Himself refers back to Terry.) Wrong: Dom and myself will chair the committee. (A reflexive pronoun can’t be a subject.) An indefinite pronoun refers to a nonspecific person or thing: somebody, nobody, anybody, everybody, someone, no one, anyone, and everyone. These pronouns take a singular verb. Everybody passed the test. No one wants to play ball in the rain. Pronoun Sticky Wickets: Little Words Causing Big Trouble Writers often mix up the use of I and me. To determine which to use, substitute the pronoun we . When we works, I is correct. When we doesn’t work, me is correct. Bree and ? went to the fair. “We” works in this sentence. Thus, it should be: Bree and I went to the fair. The envelope was addressed to Georgio, Martino, and ?. “We” doesn’t work in this sentence. Thus, it should be: The envelope was addressed to Georgio, Martino, and me. When a pronoun follows any form of the verb to be (is, was, were, etc.), use the nominative case, as in: The last runners to cross the finish line were Jorge and I.

An adverb is a word that usually modifies (describes) a verb. An adverb tells when, where, how, and to what extent the action occurs. An adverb sometimes modifies an adjective or another adverb. My cousin is the most beautiful girl in her class. (Beautiful is an adjective modifying the noun girl; most is the adverb modifying beautiful.) The comparative form of an adverb uses the word more as in more rapidly. Use this form to compare two people or things. James swam more rapidly than Morgan. The superlative form of an adverb uses the word most as in most quietly. Use this form to compare three or more people or things. In the choir, Timothy sang the most quietly.
