A noun is a person, place or thing. An adjective is a word that tells more about a noun. It describes a noun. Adding adjectives to your writing makes it more vivid and interesting. When you read, it is important that you form pictures in your mind based on the words in the story. Adjectives are what help you to form the pictures. Comparing with Adjectives Some adjectives compare nouns. There are two ways that these adjectives are formed. When you compare 2 things, you use the word more or less, or you add –er to the end of the adjective. When you compare 3 or more things, you use the word most or least, or you add –est to the end of the adjective. Compare these sentences: The boy sat. Can you picture that? Not really. There’s not enough detail. The boy sat on the musty old couch. The words musty and old are adjectives. You wrinkle your nose as you picture him sitting on that yucky couch. Jazz is more popular than rock ‘n roll. Randy is shorter than Nicole. Buy the vase that is the least expensive. This is the biggest tree in my neighborhood.
