  • Welcome to English grammar spot. This lesson is about

  • adjectives. Take a look

  • at these sentences: She's a beautiful singer

  • He became poor after the war. Both the underlined words are

  • what we call it adjectives. In this lesson

  • I'm going to show you what adjectives exactly are. I'm going to explain something

  • about the construction, which we call

  • the + adjective and I'm going to take you through some common

  • confusables. What are adjectives?

  • Adjectives give information about

  • a noun or a pronoun so a noun can be dog, cat

  • and a pronoun can be

  • he, she, it, him, her etc.

  • This information can either be

  • one word or an entire

  • clause or phrase. And a clause or a phrase is

  • a part of a sentenc.e For example he's

  • talented. Talented says something about the pronoun he.

  • My trousers are white.

  • White says something about my trousers

  • my trousers here being a noun.

  • My aunt, who is quite old, came to vist us.

  • here the underlines who is quite old

  • can also be concerned as an adjective,

  • because it says something extra about

  • my aunt. Here it is

  • a clause and we call it

  • a relative clause here. Now where do we place adjectives?

  • We place adjectives generally before a noun.

  • For example: He's a talented football player.

  • My right leg is broken.

  • Leg is the noun, right is the adjective.

  • We place the adjective after a verb

  • when it is part of a predicate and predicate

  • are all the verbs in a sentence.

  • For example: This building can never be old.

  • Old obviuosly says something about the building,

  • but because we have a predicate here so

  • several verbs and it is part of the predicate,

  • we put it at the end sentence. Now let's take a look

  • at the + adjective structure.

  • When describing a certain group

  • the 'the + adjective' construction is used. For example:

  • The English eat a hearty breakfast.

  • Or the rich get richer every year, while the poor get poorer.

  • So we use this for an entire group so this could also be

  • the French, the Dutch, the Thai

  • the Chinese, the Brazilians, for example.

  • Now let's take a look at some common confusables.

  • For instance the word poor. He is a poor boy.

  • so this means he has no money but Her hearing is poor

  • This means she can't hear very well.

  • Also the word 'small':

  • Their farm is small says something about the size but they are small farmers

  • this does not mean that there's very little people

  • but it says something about their farm

  • occupation so they probably have a small piece of land which they work on

  • also the word mean. He's mean with his money

  • obviously means that he doesn't like to spend his money

  • but he's a mean man means that he's not kind.
