Simply adjectives are descriptive words


Adjectives are used to describe or give information about things, ideas and people: nouns or pronouns.

There are different types of adjectives in the English language:

Numeric: six, one hundred and one etc.

Quantitative: more, all, some, half, more than enough etc.

Qualitative: colour, size, smell etc.

Possessive: my, his, their, your etc.

Interrogative: which, whose, what etc.

Demonstrative: this, that, those, these etc.

The order:

1. Determiner – This means an article (a, an, the), a number or amount, a possessive adjective (my, his, her, its, your, our, their), or a demonstrative (this, that, these, those).

Observation/Opinion – Beautiful, expensive, gorgeous, broken, delicious, ugly

Size – Huge, tiny, 4-foot-tall

Shape – Square, circular, oblong

Age – 10-year-old, new, antique

Color – Black, red, blue-green

Origin – Roman, English, Mongolian

Material – Silk, silver, plastic, wooden

Qualifier – A noun or verb acting as adjective

2. Transition-sentences bring out the logical relation between ideas. Words like ‘however’, ‘so’, ‘additionally’ do indicate a logical relation between paragraphs, but they are weak.  A strong transition makes the relation explicit.

Transitional words (Therefore, However, Moreover, Lastly, Next, Also, Furthermore, In addition to, Similarly, Likewise, Accordingly, Consequently, As a result, Thereby, Otherwise, Subsequently, Thus, Wherefore, Generally, Usually, For the most part, As a rule, Ordinarily, Regularly, In particular)
