WHAT ARE ADJECTIVES?

An adjective is a word that
modifies, or describes a noun or pronoun.  
When you use two or more adjectives together, you separate them with a
comma.
          Examples:  solid,
gold watch
                          Smooth,
polished stone
                           Sticky,
yellow paper
Some adjectives are made by
adding endings to proper nouns.  These
are called proper adjectives.  Always
begin a proper adjective with a capital letter. 
Here are some examples.
   PROPER NOUN                          PROPER
ADJECTIVES & NOUN
                                                                               MODIFIED
          Japan                                                  Japanese
cars
          Congress                                         Congressional
hearing
Other proper adjectives do
not have special endings.
          Example:   Hollywood movie
                            Irish
potato

ADJECTIVES TELL WHAT KIND, HOW MANY, OR WHICH ONE

Examples:
Many
adjectives tell what kind:  the big blue
lorry.
Some
adjectives tell how many:  ten lorries or
many lorries.
Other
adjectives tell which ones:  this lorry
or these lorries.
Usually, two or more
adjectives that come before a noun or pronoun are separated with commas.
          Example:  gray, foggy
days
However, adjectives that tell
number, size, shape and age often do not require commas.
          Example:  four long
slender pencils
EXERCISE :
Identify the adjectives that
tell what kind, which one, and how many:
1.

sticky markers on this shelf.
