 About Adjective

Irregular Adjective   

Adjective   Comparative     Superlative 

bad                 worse                  the worst 

far                   further                 the furthest 

good               better                  the best 

old                 older/elder          the oldest/the eldest 

We can use adjectives together to give a detailed description of something. 

Adjectives that express opinions usually come before all others, but it can sometimes depend on what exactly you want to emphasise. 

For example: 

Monica has a nice, big, blue purse. (She likes the purse.)

“That’s a nice blue.” (She likes the colour.) 

When we group adjectives together there is a general (sometimes flexible) rule for the position of each type of adjective, these are:- 


1st             2nd        3rd         4th             5th           6th             7th                  8th 

Opinion         Size          Age          Shape           Colour          Material          Origin                  Purpose 

Nice              Small        Old           Square          Black            Plastic            British                 Racing 

Ugly              Big            New         Circular          Blue             Cotton             American           Running
