Adjectives and Articles


An adjective describes a noun or a pronoun.

It tells what kind, how many, or which one.

The articles a, an, and the appear before nouns or other adjectives. Use a before words that begin with a consonant sound. Use an before words that begin with a vowel sound. Use the before words beginning with any letter.

An adjective formed from a proper noun is a proper adjective. Proper adjectives are capitalized.
