An adjective is a word that modifies a noun to denote its quality, quantity or distinctiveness. Traditionally, adjectives are considered one of the main parts of speech, although sometimes they were classified with nouns. Structural, contextual and stylistic considerations can affect the position of an adjective in a given instance of its occurrence. Adjective occurrences can generally be classified into one of three categories: prepositive adjectives, postpositive adjectives and nominalized adjectives. Prepositive adjectives, also known as attributive adjectives, occur before the noun which modifies without a linking verb.
