3. A to Z Grammar Tips: Adjective

Adjective is a word that functions as a noun modifier (i.e, it makes noun's meaning more specific) and as a complement of the verb.

As a noun modifier, an adjective is used before a noun, to modify it. In this case, an adjective is used attributively.
- Good work
- Beautiful girl
- Great achievement
- Government school
- Bad weather
As a complement of the verb, an adjective is used after the verb 'be', as its complement. In this sense, an adjective is used predicatively.
- This work is good
- She is beautiful!
- It's great!
- Our school is amazing.
- Students are curious
