Word Order: Adjectives

Average: 3.1 (20 votes)


Do you know where to put the adjective in a sentence? Follow these simple rules to help you remember:

1. The adjective comes before the noun.
e.g. I live in a small house.
I have a blue umbrella.

2. The adjective comes after the verb to be.
e.g. I am very tired.
Careful, the food is hot!

It’s also important to remember that in English the adjective doesn’t change for plural nouns. That makes things much easier!
e.g. Those houses are beautiful.
We are really happy.
