Adjectives are words that describe nouns. Adjectives can be
omitted (left out) from a
sentence that contains the noun they describe. In other
words, a sentence in English is still proper (correct) if it does not
contain an adjective preceding (before)
Examples of proper sentences
Examples of improper
is a smart boy.
is a smart.
dragon is a mythological creature.
dragon is a mythological.
Interestingly, without the articles a,
an and the in a
sentence, the noun is not required after the adjective. For example,
Basil is smart.
Adjectives can be preceded by adverbs which make them more descriptive.
