Review:
Order of adjectives
 We put adjectives describing type of purpose next to the noun. These
adjectives are often part of the noun.
A long steel hunting knife… (=knife used for hunting)
 We put “opinion” adjectives before others.
An amazing long steel hunting knife…

opinion size shape age colour origin material Type/purpose NOUN


(a)valuable large round Italian bedroom Mirror
(an)old red silk wedding dress

Be careful! We do not usually use more than three or four adjectives in front of
a noun. If we want to give more information we use another clause or sentence.

Making adjectives stronger or weaker


WEAKER STRONGER
A little/a bit/slightly fairly quite rather/pretty very really extremely

 A little; a bit = after nous.


The book was a bit expensive.
 Rather = with negative adjectives.
The test was rather difficult.
 Rather; quite = with positive adjectives is something surprising
The lesson is rather interesting. (=more than I expected)
