So last week we started a new topic, ‘descriptive adjectives’ and we will continue from where we stopped. The adjectives we learnt last week are the adjectives that are used to describe the personality, appearance and sentiments of nouns they are qualifying.

Remember that, the adjectives can be masculine and feminine in gender and also singular and plural in number. And I also told you guys that the adjectives are used according to the gender and number of the nouns they describe. In other words, masculine adjectives can only modify masculine nouns and feminine nouns can only modify feminine nouns. In the same way, singular adjectives modify singular nouns and plural adjectives modify plural nouns.

below are some of  the adjectives that describe the form, the measurement, the time and the quantity of nouns.
