Attributive and Predicate Adjectives

Attributive Adjectives

 

 

In English grammar, an attributive adjective is an adjective that usually comes before the noun it modifies without a linking verb.

Eg: It was a sweet moment.

She saw a beautiful swan.

 

Predicate Adjective

 

 

A predicate adjective is an adjective that follows a linking verb and modifies(i.e., refers back to) the subject of the linking verb.

Eg: She is beautiful.

The lion was fearsome.
