Adjectives in English – grammar chart

 
Adjectives – old, interesting, expensive, etc.
 

Adjective + noun

 
When we use adjectives with a noun in English, the adjectives go before the noun.

  • It’s an expensive guitar. (NOT It’s a guitar expensive.)
  • She has a new car

 

am/is/are + adjective

 
We can also use adjectives without a noun after the verb be.

  • This guitar is expensive
  • Her car is new

In questions the adjective can go after be + subject.

  • Is your car new
  • Are your classmates nice

 

feel/look/smell/sound/taste + adjective

 
We can also use adjectives without a noun after the verbs of the senses: feel, look, smell, sound, taste.

  • Your idea sounds interesting
  • I don’t like this soup. It tastes horrible.
  • You look tired
  • These cookies smell delicious
  • I feel depressed

 

No plural

 
Adjectives in English have no plural. They are always singular.

  • These are my favourite shoes. (NOT These are my favourites shoes.)
  • She has blue eyes. (NOT She has blues eyes.)

 

very/quite

 
We can use very and quite before the adjectives.

  • It’s very expensive.
  • It’s quite expensive.
