When we talk about people, places or things, sometimes we want to describe their quality, size, shape or color. The words we use to describe objects or people or places are called Adjectives.

Adjectives are also called describing words because they tell us something more about a naming word. It describes the color, size, shape, feeling, quantity, age taste etc.
