Where are Adjectives Placed?
'Adjectives' are words that describe nouns. They can be put before the noun, or after 'to be' verbs.
As we mentioned above, an adjective can be used before the noun it is describing. Look below:
'Girl' is a noun.
Now, take a look at their placement in complete sentences:
I can see a
He is a
After the 'Be' Verb
We can also place adjectives after 'to be' verbs. Check out the following examples:
The dog is
The panda is
