Adjectives Edit

Adjectives also act as adverbs. They describe a noun, verb, or another adjective. They always follow the word they describe. If you want to tag multiple adjectives onto one word (Ex: The big, powerful empire), you do not put them next to each other like in the example sentence. Instead, then must be joined by a conjunction (more on this in the the conjunction subtitle), or it implies that one of the adjectives is describing the other adjective.
