There are different kinds of adjectives. Let's take a look at each of them.

Adjectives of Quality

  • These are descriptive adjectives, so they give more information about the person, place, or thing they modify.
  • They answer the question What kind is it? - is it old or new; is it good or bad; is it near or far; etc.

For example:

  • My shoes are so old.
  • She is a joyful woman.

Adjectives of Quantity

  • These adjectives are used to describe an amount of something that can't be counted.
  • These types of adjectives answer the question How much?
  • These words tell us about a noun's quantity - is there a lot, a little, or enough?

For example:

  • My family drinks lots of milk.
  • California didn't have enough water during the drought.

Adjectives of Number

  • These adjectives answer the question How many?
  • They tell us what number of a certain noun there is.
  • They include exact numbers like one and twelve, and also less precise adjectives like no, all, some, and many that give a general idea of how many there are.

For example:

  • A lot of parents assign chores.
  • Fourteen students were in line ahead of me on pizza day.
