An adjective is a type of word. Precisely, it’s a word that modifies or describes a noun. I don’t know how helpful the previous sentence was because if you didn’t know what an adjective is before now, then you probably don’t know what a noun is. In that case, saying that an adjective modifies a noun doesn’t help you.

No problem. I’ll be getting to the word noun eventually. I’m now on words starting with adj. I’m working alphabetically from the beginning of the dictionary. It took me more than a month and a half to get this far. You do the math. There is a fair chance that we’ll both be dead long before then.
