What modifies nouns and pronouns?

I need to understand noun and pronoun modifiers.


Answer by  cdk (42)

Nouns and pronouns are modified by adjectives. Adjectives describe nouns by limiting their characteristics. For example the noun "dress" may be modified by the adjective "red" which, while not identifying a shade of red, clearly distinguishes the dress from one that is blue or green.


Answer by  David87 (112)

Adjectives modify nouns and pronouns by adding in-depth descriptions and contexts to the noun/pronoun, however these aren't to be confused with Adverbs, as Adjectives do not describe actions. Adjectives would be words like: red, Intelligent, charismatic. Adverbs add action to sentences and are paired with nouns ie "he was running fast" to give descriptions for whats happening
