I am extremely glad to keep you posted that your dream to Learn English grammar step by step is only a step away from your reach. This page is a suitable place where linguistic students can have a chance to enhance their language efficiency because here is what you always aspire for, English grammar lessons with detailed explanation. This is the second part about Adjective Definition and examples by English phobia.com In the first part we have learnt the definition of adjectives and its types. The leftover types we are going to learn here.

Demonstrative Adjective

There are some specific words that help to denote the nouns or pronouns.

This         That

These      Those

        ·        This & that are used to demonstrate singular nouns and These & Those are used for plural nouns.

Examples : This restaurant, these restaurants and that boy, those boys.

Here is a basic rule to differentiate where to use this, that or these, those.

For nearby things we always use this and these, but for far off things that and those.

This

        1.      This blog is an english grammar online platform for English learners.

      2.      This book helped me score 98% marks in 12th class.

That

        1.      That teacher taught us about modals before the final exams.

        2.      That honesty is the best policy is known to everybody.

These

        1.      These trees provide us with free unlimited source of oxygen.

        2.      These people don’t believe in any religion or existence of God.

Those

        1.      Those boys used to play Football with us in childhood.

        2.      Those members of school management committee haven’t taken actions to reopen the schools.

Note: you can be a bit confused to differentiate the demonstrative pronouns or demonstrative adjectives here is only a minor difference to identify it. Let’s us figure it out with an example.

        1.      This bus driver has been serving for the nations for 10 years. (Adjective)

        2.      This doesn’t make any change in my life. (Pronoun)

 You may have this question why the first one is an example of an adjective while another belongs to a pronoun. This is why because an adjective always takes a noun or pronoun just as it is used in the first sentence. The pronoun replaces a noun hence in the second sentence after ‘this’ a verb is used.

Adjective of Quantity

These adjectives are used to tell about the measurement of something by using some words that belong to adjective of quantity.

Usage: Little, few, many, much, any, enough, all, some and sufficient ect.

Examples

        1.      Little things in life can bring a huge opportunity that one can never expect of.

        2.      Little change in the cleanliness has been observed over the years in the department of railways.

        3.      Few students always come without a notebook or a pen.

        4.      After a few minutes he finished the work, his mother had already slept.

        5.      Only few months ago we all met at Baprola Vihar.

        6.      I have studied many grammar books to improve my learning.

        7.      Many students are not happy with their final result of 12th class declare by C.B.C.E. board.

        8.      He gave me much information about this news.

        9.      If you have any problem, please let me know about it at first.

        10.   Do you have enough time to teach him?

        11.   Some change in the nature is necessary with the passage of time.

        12.   I have collected sufficient date to show people regarding this news.

Distributive adjective: this adjective is used to tell the each thing of a group or collection.

These are the words that we use to form these sentences.

Each, Every, Either, Neither ect.

Note: always use a singular noun and a singular verb with these words.

        1.      Each citizen of this polluted world is responsible for the today’s condition.

        2.      As per her perspective each question was equally important for the exam’s point of view.

        3.      Everyone thinks to enrich him anyhow.

        4.      Each and every person must plant at least two trees to pay his due to the nature.

        5.      Either you or she can live here.    

        6.      She asked me choose either her or my mother, but I choose both.

        7.      The life has provided me neither a good mind nor a peaceful life.

        8.      Neither your reasons nor absence can make up this loss ever.

Note: In case you want to use the distributive adjectives professionally, please make sure you use the accurate pattern for these.

Examples

Either …She.. Or ..I.. am going to do it.

Neither…I.. Or ..my friends.. could suggest him a trustworthy place where she could last for some days.

Always follow the pattern with these words and the verb comes according to the last noun or pronoun in the sentence as shown in the examples.
