    Adjectives for Writers

Since what will be generated is unknown, it forces the writer to use creativity to use the adjectives to make a great paragraph or short story.

    Types of Adjectives

    Did you know that there are actually three types of adjectives in the Eglish language? Can you guess what they are? The following are the three different types of adjectives that are included in the calculator:

    Descriptive Adjectives

    Descriptive adjectives are the ones that most people think of when they hear the word "adjective." These are used to describe a specific characteristic of a noun. These are the words that help explain the noun's color, size, and shape among other things. In the sentence, "I walked past a sleek, yellow car on my way home," the words "sleek" and "yellow" are descriptive adjectives.

    Quantitative Adjectives

    Another type of adjective is the quantitative adjective. When a qualitative adjective is used, it helps to describe an approximate amount (or sometimes the exact amount) of a particular noun. In the sentence, "There were a few cars and many bicycles in front of the store" the words "few" and "many" are quantitative adjectives describing the number of cars and bicycles. Additional examples of quantitative adjectives would be a little, no, and all.

    Numerical adjectives are a type of quantitative adjective. Instead of a general amount, numerical adjectives give a specific number quantity. Some examples of this would be one, five, ten, second, and twentieth. In the sentence, "There were three cars and thirty bicycles in front of the store" the words "three" and "thirty" are numerical quantitative adjectives.

    Demonstrative Adjectives

    The third type of adjective is the demonstrative adjective. These are used when "which one?" needs to be answered by specifying a certain noun. In the sentence, "I love the color of this car, but not the color of that one" the words "this" and "that" are demonstrative adjectives describing which car is being referred to. Additional demonstrative adjectives are those and these.
