									   Adjective

   An adjective is a word that describes. Adjectives convey a sense of which, what kind, or how
   many/much. Adjectives describe nouns or pronouns.

   In English grammar the function of a word in a sentence determines the classification of the
   word. Some words can function in more than one classification. Consider the following
   examples.

   Water sustains life. (Noun)
   Water the lawn. (Verb)
   He likes water sports. (Adjective)

   A pronoun may function as an adjective. The word this is a demonstrative pronoun that
   functions as an adjective in the following example.

   I like this book.

Which book? Answer: this. The word this identifies which book I like.
