Lawless English


Adjectives are words that modify nouns. They describe nouns by telling us the color, age, size, or some other characteristic of that noun. Unlike adjectives in some languages, in English they have a single form – they do not change according to gender, number, or location in the sentence.

Note that English adjectives are always placed in front of the nouns they modify, with one exception. When forming a sentence with a copular verb (or pseudo copular verb), the adjective is placed after the verb.
