🥳THE ADJECTIVES  REVIEW🥳 Adjectives - words that clarify(make clear) a noun/give us further information about a noun. There are many types of adjectives. But in this table we have discussed determiners which precede (come before), the order of adjectives and three main types of adjectives namely: 1. Comparative 2. Superlative 3. Descriptive 🏹 DETERMINERS ☆ They are not adjectives. ☆ They are placed before nouns to introduce them to listeners/the audience. ☆ They include: 1. Articles (a, an, the) Indefinite articles- point out class of nouns in a sentence. "a" is used with consonants e.g. a bicycle, a television, a laptop. "an" is used with vowels e.g. an apple, an umbrella. Exceptions: ¤ "an" is used before a silent or unsounded "h" e.g. an honourable man, an honest mistake. ¤When"u" makes the same sound as "y" or "o" makes the same sound as "w", use "a". an union❌ a union✅ an one-man army❌ a one-man army an used tissue❌ a used tissue✅ Definitive article - refers to a particular (specific) noun in a  sentence. "the" e.g. The cat is on the kitchen table. 2. Quantifiers (a few, enough, many, much, a little, most, some, any, etc.) ☆ use "of" between a quantifier and other determiners e.g  She knows some of my friends 3.
