English Language Primer (contd.)

Continuing from yesterday... a bit about adjectives and adverbs

An adjective describes a noun. It usually follows the pattern "You are very _______________". For example "You are very misogynous", "You are very courageous", etc. Adjectives usually end in -ous, -ive, -as, -ed, -ic, etc.

Adverbs are generally formed by adding a -ly to an adjective. Misogynously, courageously, etc are adverbs.
