The phrase 'the love of a father' may mean either 'a father's love of his child' or 'a child's love of his father'. Nouns in Apposition Read the following sentence: Rama, our captain, made fifty runs.

We see that Rama and our captain are one and the same person. The noun captain follows the noun Rama simply to explain which Rama is referred to. Page 19 When one noun follows another to describe it, the noun which follows is said to be in apposition to the noun which comes before it.

In the above sentence the noun captain is in apposition to the noun Rama, and is in the Nominative Case because Rama is in the Nominative Case. Further examples: Kabir, the great reformer, was a weaver. Yesterday I met your uncle, the doctor. Have you seen Ganguli, the artist's drawings? In sentence 1, the noun in apposition is in the Nominative Case.

In sentence 2, the noun in apposition is in the Accusative Case. Sita is a clever girl. Girl of what kind1? I don't like that boy, Which boy? He gave me five mangoes. How many mangoes?

There is little time for preparation. How much time? A word used with a noun to describe or point out, the person, animal, place or thing which the noun names, or to tell the number or quantity, is called an Adjective.

So we may define an Adjective as a word used with a noun to add something for its meaning. Look at the following sentences: The lazy boy was punished. The boy is lazy.

In sentence 1, the Adjective lazy is used along with the noun boy as an epithet or attribute. It is, therefore, said to be used Attributively. In sentence 2, the Adjective lazy is used along with the verb is, Page 20 and forms part of the Predicate. It is, therefore, said to be used Predicatively. Some Adjectives can be used only Predicatively; as, She is afraid of ghosts. I am quite well. Kinds of Adjectives Adjectives may be divided into the following classes: Adjectives of Quality or Descriptive Adjective show the kind or quality of a person or thing; as, Kolkata is a large city.

He is an honest man. The foolish old crow tried to sing. They are generally classed with Adjectives of Quality language. Adjectives of Quality answer the question: Of what kind?

Adjectives of Quantity show how much of a thing is meant as, I ate some rice. He showed much patience. He has little intelligence. We have had enough exercise. He has lost all his wealth. You have no sense. He did not eat any rice. Take great care of your health.

He claimed his half share of the booty. There has not been sufficient rain this year. The whole sum was expended. Adjectives of Quantity answer the question: How much? Adjectives of Number or Numeral Adjectives show how many persons or things are meant, or in what order a person or thing stands; as, The hand has five fingers. Few cats like cold water. There are no pictures in this book. I have taught you many things. All men must die. Here are some ripe mangoes.

Most boys like cricket. There are several mistakes in your exercise. Sunday is the first day of the week Page 21 Adjectives of Number or Numeral Adjectives are of three kinds: First, second, third, etc.

It will be seen that Ordinals really do the work of Demonstrative Adjectives. See 74] ii Indefinite Numeral Adjectives, which do not denote an exact number; as, All, no; many, few; some, any; certain, several, sundry. India expects every man to do his duty. Every word of it is false. Either pen will do. On either side is a narrow lane. Neither accusation is true. The same Adjective may be classed as of Quantity or Number, according to its use.

Adjectives of Quantity -- Adjectives of Number I ate some rice. I have enough sugar. Demonstrative Adjectives point out which person or thing is meant; as, This boy is stronger than Hari. That boy is industrious. These mangoes are sour. Those rascals must be punished. Yonder fort once belonged to Shivaji. Don't be in such a hurry.

I hate such things. Demonstrative Adjectives answer the question: What, which and whose, when they are used with nouns toask questions, are called Interrogative Adjectives; as, What manner of man is he?

Which way shall we go? Whose book is this? Page 22 Exercise in Grammar 6 Pick out all the Adjectives in the following sentences, and say to which class each of them belongs: The ship sustained heavy damage. I have called several times. Every dog has his day. A live ass is better than a dead lion, 5. Every man has his duties. Say the same thing twice over. Several persons were present at the time, 8. He is a man of few words.

Neither party is quite in the right. What time is if? Which pen do you prefer? The way was long, the wind was cold, the minstrel was infirm and old.

He comes here every day. I have not seen him for several days. There should not be much talk and little work. Abdul won the second prize. The child fell down from a great height. He was absent last week. He died a glorious death. A small leak may sink a great ship.

Good wine needs no bush. I like the little pedlar who has a crooked nose. King Francis was a hearty King and loved a royal sport. In the furrowed land the toilsome patient oxen stand.

My uncle lives in the next house. Some dreams are like reality. A cross child is not liked. It is an ill wind that blows nobody any good.

In the following sentences the words own and very are used as Emphasizing Adjectives: He was beaten at his own game. Mind your own business. He is his own master. That is the very thing we want. The word what is sometimes used as an Exclamatory Adjective; as. What genius! What folly! What an idea! What a blessing! What a piece of work is man! This girl sings.

These girls sing. That boy plays. Those boys play. This, these indicate something near to the speaker. That, those indicate more distant objects. Formation of Adjectives Page 23 Care -- careful Pardon -- pardonable Play -- playful Laugh -- laughable Hope -- hopeful Outrage -- outrageous Venture -- venturesome Courage -- courageous Trouble -- troublesome Glory -- glorious Shame -- shameless Envy -- envious Sense -- senseless Man -- manly Silk -- silken King -- kingly Gold -- golden Gift -- gifted ii Some Adjectives are formed from Verbs.

The town stood a siege. The prize was won by a Hindu. The woman lives in a wretched hut. This is a very matter.

The battle of Waterloo ended in a victory. Suddenly there arose a storm. It is a lie. The tidings were a heavy blow to the old man. Here is a rupee: His reading is of a very range. The injured man wants advice. You cannot have it ways. India expects man to do his duty. The bird catches the worm. Have you any reason to give? There were riots in places.

An man will not reason calmly. He stands feet in his stockings. Nelson won for himself fame. I have no cash. He always walks with a step.

Every cloud has a lining. He was a man of ambition. He was listened to in silence. Exercise in Composition 8 Form Adjectives from the following Nouns: Page 24 pain, doubt, wonder, peace, child, prince, mountain, ridicule, picture, labour, wood, pomp, artist, progress, slave, contempt, tempest, sense, quarrel, I thought, hope, friend.

Exercise in Composition 9 Use each of the following Adjectives in a sentence: His polite manners have endeared him to all. Swimming is a healthy exercise. A certain man fell among thieves. Exercise in Composition 10 Use a suitable Adjective with each of the following Nouns: A long siege. A decisive victory. A populous city. A devoted husband. Storm, siege, sleep, victory, advice, blow, silence, hands, water, servant, flower, city, artist, dealer, voice, husband, subject, child, king, dog.

Exercise in Composition 11 Use as many suitable Adjectives as you can with each of the following Nouns: A deliberate lie, a black lie, a white lie.

Exercise in Composition 12 Write down the Adjectives opposite in meaning to the following: Read these sentences: Rama's mango is sweet. Hari's mango is sweeter than Rama's. Govind's mango is the sweetest of all. Page 25 In sentence 1, the adjective sweet merely tells us that Rama's mango has the quality of sweetness, without saying how much of this quality it has. In sentence 2, the adjective sweeter tells us that Hari's mango, compared with Rama's, has more of the quality of sweetness.

In sentence 3, the adjective sweetest tells us that of all these mangoes Govind's mango has the greatest amount or highest degree of the quality of sweetness. We thus see that Adjectives change in form sweet, sweeter, sweetest to show comparison. They are called the three Degrees of Comparison. The Adjective sweet is said to be in the Positive Degree. The Adjective sweeter is said to be in the Comparative Degree. The Adjective sweetest is said to be in the Superlative Degree. The Positive Degree of an Adjective is the Adjective in its simple form.

It is used to denote the mere existence of some quality of what we speak about. It is used when no comparison is made. The Comparative Degree of an Adjective denotes a higher degree of the quality than the Positive, and is used when two things or sets of things are compared; as, This boy is stronger than that. Which of these two pens is the better? Apples are dearer than oranges. The Superlative Degree of an Adjective denotes the highest degree of the quality, and is used when more than two things or sets of things are compared; as, This boy is the strongest in the class.

Note 1: Instead of saying 'Rama is stronger than Balu we can say 'Balu is less strong than Rama'. Instead of saying 'Hari is the laziest boy in the class', we can say 'Hari is the least industrious boy in the class7.

Note 2: It was a most eloquent speech. Truly, a most ingenious device! This usage has been called the Superlative of Eminence, or the Absolute Superlative. Formation of Comparative and Superlative Most Adjectives of one syllable, and some of more than one, form the Comparative by adding er and the Superlative by adding est to the positive. Page 26 Positive -- Comparative -- Superlative Sweet -- sweeter -- sweetest Small -- smaller -- smallest Tall -- taller -- tallest Bold -- bolder -- boldest Clever -- cleverer -- cleverest Kind -- kinder -- kindest Young -- younger -- youngest Great -- greater -- greatest When the Positive ends in e, only r and st are added.

Brave -- braver -- bravest Fine -- finer -- finest White -- whiter -- whitest Large -- larger -- largest Able -- abler -- ablest Noble -- nobler -- noblest Wise -- wiser -- wisest When the Positive ends in j, preceded by a consonant, the y is changed into i before adding er and est. Happy -- happier -- happiest Easy -- easier -- easiest Heavy -- heavier -- heaviest Merry -- merrier -- merriest Wealthy -- wealthier -- wealthiest When the Positive is a word of one syllable and ends in a single consonant, preceded by a short vowel, this consonant is doubled before adding er and est.

Red -- redder -- reddest Big -- bigger -- biggest Hot -- hotter -- hottest Thin -- thinner -- thinnest Sad -- sadder -- saddest Fat -- fatter -- fattest Adjectives of more than two syllables form the Comparative and Superlative by putting more and most before the Positive.

Positive -- Comparative -- Superlative Beautiful -- more beautiful -- most beautiful Difficult -- more difficult -- most difficult Industrious -- more industrious -- most industrious Courageous -- more courageous -- most courageous Two-syllable adjectives ending infill e. The following take either er and est or more and most. The-Comparative-in er is not used when we compare two qualities in the same person or thing. If we wish to say that the courage of Rama is greater than the courage of Balu, we say Page 27 Rama is braver than Balu.

But if we wish to say that the courage of Rama is greater than his prudence, we must say, Rama is more brave than prudent. When two objects are compared with each other, the latter term of comparison must exclude the former; as, Iron is more useful than any other metal.

If we say, Iron is more useful than any metal, that is the same thing as saying 'Iron is more useful than iron' since iron is itself a metal. Irregular Comparison The following Adjectives are compared irregularly, that is, their Comparative and Superlative are not formed from the Positive: Exercise in Grammar 13 Compare the following Adjectives: Later, latter; latest, last.

He is later than I expected. I have not heard the latest news. The latter chapters are lacking in interest. The last chapter is carelesslv written Ours is the last house in the street.

The comparative degree is generally followed by than; but Comparative Adjectives ending in -or are followed by the preposition to; as, Inferior, superior, prior, anterior, posterior, senior, junior.

Hari is inferior to Ram in intelligence. Rama's intelligence is superior to Hari's. His marriage was prior to his father's death. He is junior to all his colleagues. All his colleagues are senior to him.

Adjectives expressing qualities that do not admit of different degrees cannot, strictly speaking, be compared; as, Square, round, perfect, eternal, universal, unique. Strictly speaking, a thing cannot be more square, more round, more perfect.

He is always playing computer games. An Adjective used attributively is generally placed immediately before the noun; as, King Francis was a hearty king, and loved a royal sport. Where are you going, my pretty maid, with your rosy cheeks and golden hair? O Captain! Observe the difference in meaning between: In poetry, however, the Adjective is frequently placed after the noun; as.

When several Adjectives are attached to one noun they are sometimes placed after it for emphasis; as There dwelt a miller hale and bold. The King, fearless and resolute, at once advanced.

When some word or phrase is joined to the Adjective to explain its meaning, the Adjective is placed after its noun; as, He was a man fertile in resource. A Sikh, taller than any of his comrades, rushed forward. In certain phrases the Adjective always comes after the noun; as Heir apparent, time immemorial, lord paramount, viceroy elect, letters, patent, knights temporal, notary public, body politic, God Almighty. Some, any- To express quantity or degree some is used normally in affirmative sentences, any in negative or interrogative sentences.
