An

adjective is a name for a word that modifies (describes) a noun. Nouns are words

that name a place, a person, a thing, or an idea. An adjective is a word that gives more information about the noun that goes with it (accompanies). Word Order As a rule, in English, the adjective comes before the noun it describes. Some examples, with the adjective in bold:     I like blue skies and fluffy clouds. He is a nice man. It was a cold day. They are good people

Exception Sometimes an adjective is not followed by a noun:    The sky is blue. The joke she told was so funny, I could not stop laughing all day. He went crazy

It's still an adjective, because we could have "the blue sky", "the funny joke", and "the crazy man". The adjective is still describing the noun though they are not side by side.
