Running out of adjectives? Unsure of how to use a specific adjective?
No worries, let us talk about example of adjectives in the next few minutes.
But of course before we look at example of adjectives, let's clearly define what an adjective is so we can avoid further confusion. An adjective is a word that is used to describe a noun. Confused about nouns as well? A noun is a name of a place, person, animal, thing, or event. An example of adjectives is any word that depicts or expresses the appearance, color, height, size, texture, or other characteristic of such nouns.
Here's an example of adjectives that portrays texture: smooth. It can be used in a sentence this way, “Her skin is very smooth, similar to the red silk dress draped all over it.” Here, “smooth,” an example of adjectives is used to describe the texture of a body part. Let's try using it to describe an experience or event, “We had a really smooth trip to the wilderness; there were no delays, beast-encounters or any of those paranormal encounters people usually fear.” In this example, “smooth” is no longer used to depict texture of an object but it is used to describe how an event went.
Now let's try another example of adjectives. White, for instance is a color. When we say, “The alley is lined with white turkey feathers,” we mean that the feathers are literally white in terms of color. We can use “white” as an adjective in a different context though. For instance, “A white lie saved Courtney Fatt from committing suicide.” Here, white is not literally a color but a description of the nature of a lie. It means that the lie is motivated by good intentions.
So we have already seen example of adjectives that illustrate texture and color. Let's talk about appearance then. Here's one, “Jillian Michaels is naturally glamorous even when she is sweating it out at the gym with those big fat losers.” Or we can also say, “The floor is so shiny; I can totally use it as a mirror!”
How about size and height? Of course there is an example of adjectives for those! See this, “This place is enormous; how does your cleaning lady manage to keep it tidy?” “The Tower of Terror is extremely high and it scares the hell out of me each time!”
See? Adjectives are really fun to use. They help you express your thoughts better and they paint a clearer and more detailed image of any noun you want to communicate to people.
