An adjective phrase is a group of words that functions as an adjective in a sentence. It typically includes an adjective and any modifying words or phrases.
Here are some examples of adjective phrases:
- Happy with my new job (adjective: “happy”; modifier: “with my new job”)
- Tired after a long day (adjective: “tired”; modifier: “after a long day”)
- Excited to go on vacation (adjective: “excited”; modifier: “to go on vacation”)
- Frustrated by the traffic (adjective: “frustrated”; modifier: “by the traffic”)
In each of these examples, the adjective phrase is modifying a noun or pronoun in the sentence. It provides additional information about the noun or pronoun and describes its qualities or characteristics.
