What is an adjective phrase?
An adjective phrase is a group of words used collectively to describe a noun or pronoun in a sentence.
An adjective phrase is made of at least one intensifier (usually a pronoun or preposition) and one adjective. It can also be made of two or more adjectives. They modify the noun, pronoun, or subject of a sentence.
Some examples (the adjective phrase is italicized):
- The big brown dog ran away.
- This is an incredibly expensive dress.
- My father was very happy with the meal.
- The man covered in sweat looked pleased with himself.
An adjective phrase can be used before or after the noun it is modifying.
