Adjectives: An Adjective describes or limits a noun or pronoun by telling which one, what kind, or how many.
Adjectives help you see objects more clearly. For example, slimy lets you imagine the feel of worms. If you were to say wriggly or whip-like, you could even begin to see the worms move. In the same way, tight-fisted creates the image of Mr. Scrooge who is miserly and ungenerous. The more vivid and precise the adjectives you use, the clearer the picture you create.
