An adjective is a word that gives you extra information about a noun or a pronoun. Here’s an example sentence:


The adjective ‘green’ tells us some extra information about the noun ‘ball’. This is probably the most common position you’ll find an adjective in - just before the noun it’s describing. Of course, it can also be placed in different positions in a sentence, like this:

Tyrannosaurus Rex was large.

In this sentence, the noun is ‘Tyrannosaurus Rex’. The adjective describing T-Rex is ‘large’, which comes later in the sentence. The verb ‘was’ is a linking verb that connects the subject of the sentence ‘Tyrannosaurus Rex’ with the subject complement, in this case, the adjective ‘large’.
