Adjective Magnet Words

Adjectives are the words we use to provide a description of something or someone.

For example, the following words in italics are adjectives (descriptive words):

The beautiful lady

The long lane

The tall tower

The red jacket

That’s enough for today on adjectives. I’d say this post is short and sweet!
