Adjectives

Adjectives add information to or describe a noun.

 

There are also ways of describing different kinds of adjective semantically, i.e. according to their meaning:

 

Note that it is often possible to describe the same adjective as ‘evaluative’ and ‘emotive’.  That’s the problem with semantic categories - we may all react slightly differently to the same words.  Don’t spend too long wondering whether a word is ‘evaluative’ or ‘emotive’ - just pick one! (and justify it in your analytical comment).
