Adjectives are Clues

 

Adjectives describe nouns.

Yes, we learned that long ago!

But did we ever learn, or even realize, that an adjective is also a clue?

It is a clue that gives away the attitude of the user.

For example:

In a battle, the soldiers on both sides fight bravely and refuse to budge.

The TV News anchor says:

“Our troops were resolute; the enemy troops were stubborn.”

On whose side is the TV News Anchor?

Enough said!

Adjectives are clues. They give away plenty about the attitude of the user.

Look carefully at adjectives – they contain clues!
