Types of adjectives

There are many types of adjectives.

  1. Qualifying adjectives . They are adjectives that qualify, add or subtract value to the noun. For example: old house .
  2. Explanatory adjectives . They are adjectives that highlight the qualities of nouns and are generally placed before the noun. For example: big hills.
  3. Gentile adjectives . They are adjectives that serve to indicate the origin of someone or something. Unlike nouns, adjectives are not capitalized. For example: Albanian citizen (“Albania” is a proper noun and is written with a capital letter, but Albanian is a gentilicio adjective and is written with a lower case)
  4. Numeral adjectives . They are the adjectives that indicate a numerical quantity. They can be subclassified into: cardinals , ordinals , multiples and partitives . For example: two, half, double, third. 
  5. Pronominal adjectives . They may be:
    • Demonstrative adjectives . They are adjectives that serve to indicate the relationship of proximity or distance with something. For example: that house, that man.
    • Possessive adjectives . They are adjectives that indicate who something belongs to. For example: my beloved , our children. 
    • Indefinite adjectives . They are adjectives that give information but not with precise data. For example: no child, ever .
