Adjectives are words that describe nouns and are commonly called describing words.

They can be used to describe the size , colour, age,  shape and the general appearance of nouns and can be placed before nouns but after verbs .

It is a blue car. (Before the noun)

The car is blue. (After the verb)

A happy day. (Before the noun)

He is happy.  (After the verb) 


Some adjectives that appear after nouns include adjectives that give detail to the size or age of something.
