What's the difference between nouns and adjectives?


Answer by  bean11 (2803)

A noun is generally a word that acts like a person, place, thing, or idea. An adjective is a word that modifies the noun (or describes it.) Examples of nouns would be words like: house, tree, table, or Barack Obama. Adjectives that could describe these nouns would be: presidential, big, green, tall, sturdy, wooden, pretty, etc.

A noun is a person, a place, or a thing. An adjective is basically a descriptive word, and it modifies a noun. For example, in the sentence "Joe is a sad man," "Joe" and "man" are nouns--they both refer to a person. "Sad" is an adjective, however--it describes the noun.

A good way of differentiating between nouns and adjectices is to check the number if the word show number-singular or plural then it is noun else adjective.Adjectives don't show number.  add a comment
