Mark Twain said, ‘When you find an adjective, kill it.’ Adjectives are words that modify nouns. So what’s the problem with them?
In order to discuss what makes a good sentence, we need some shared vocabulary to discuss the function of different words. You may have learned your prepositions from your adjectives at school, but subsequently you may have forgotten which is which. Or, if you’re like me, maybe you never learned the difference between an adverb and a conjunction.
