Parts of Speech - Adjectives

Parts of Speech - Adjectives

• Almost all words have a “part of speech”. Which part of speech a word has depends on how it is used in a sentence. Here is a list of the eight parts of speech: Noun Verb Adjective Adverb Conjunction Preposition Pronoun Interjection
Adjective: An adjective is a word or phrase that is used to modify a noun or pronoun. Example: The snake is long and green.
• In this example, long and green are adjectives because they modify the noun snake.
• Some words modify nouns that are not adjectives. These are attributive nouns. They are not predicative of the noun, so they are not adjectives. Example: The painting is extremely old.
• In this example, old is an adjective because it modifies the noun painting. However, extremely is not an adjective. It modifies the adjective old. Therefore it is an adverb. Example: The baseball team is good. • In this example, baseball modifies team. However, baseball is not an adjective because it is not predicative of the noun - the team is not baseball. Good is the only adjective in the sentence - the team is good.
Directions: Underline the adjectives in the following sentences.
1) The motorcycle is old.
 2) Today is cloudy, hot, and humid.
3) The man wearing a blue suit is young.
4) The runner is very fast.
 5) He is a good basketball player.
 6) Alamance Community College is a great place to learn.
 7) The blue bus is late. 8) The rusty truck has an oversized trailer.
 9) Jaime is so smart!
10) The job was difficult, but manageable.
11) The house has new plumbing and running water.
 12) The silly man laughed uncontrollably.
13) The boy said he was sorry.
14) The intoxicated gentleman wasn’t sure if the clock was fast or slow.

15) “A cleaner environment,” he trenchantly stated, “Is the key.”
