Dear Reader,

Did you notice I changed my picture? You’ll have to enable images in this email if you don’t see it.

Aging ten years in a single day, reminds me of this Regina Brett quote. “Growing old beats the alternative — dying young.” LOL!

Cheers,

An adjective is a word or phrase that describes a noun. Adjectives usually answer questions such as: “What kind is it?”, “How many are there?”, or “Which one is it?” Today’s sites explore adjectives with articles, lessons and worksheets for grades K-12.

Enchanted Learning: Grammar: Adjectives
****
“A comparative adjective is used to compare two things. A superlative adjective is used when you compare three or more things. For example, looking at apples you can compare their size, determining which is big, which is bigger, and which is biggest.” Enchanted Learning starts with a short lesson, then come the related activities and worksheets. Some of the printable worksheets are only available to paying members, but there is still plenty here for looky loos.

Guide to Grammar & Writing: Adjectives
*****
This Guide to Grammar article for high-school students and grownups, explores adjectives in more depth. “Unlike adverbs, which often seem capable of popping up almost anywhere in a sentence, adjectives nearly always appear immediately before the noun or noun phrase that they modify. Sometimes they appear in a string of adjectives, and when they do, they appear in a set order according to category.” For more on the order of adjectives, scroll down to the Royal Order of Adjectives table.
