Pengertian dan Contoh Kalimat Adjective Phrase – Adjective phrase adalah sekelompok kata sifat yang menjadi satu kesatuan makna. Adjective phrase bisa terdiri dari gabungan determiners, modifiers, dan juga adjective itu sendiri.

Adjective phrases bisa diletakkan sebelum kata benda, juga bisa diletakkan setelah linking verb (seem, see, sound, taste, smell, feel, etc).

Ingat bahwa adjective (kata sifat) dalam adjective phrase bisa dijelaskan dengan adverb (kata keterangan). Ketika ia dimodifikasi dengan adverb, maka adverb harus diletakkan sebelum adjective (kata sifat). Adjective juga bisa dijelaskan dengan kata penjelas lainnya seperti articles (a, an, the), kata ganti kepemilikan (possessives) dan kata tunjuk (demonstratives).

‘her small tidy room’

Dalam ‘adjective phrase’ tersebut ‘my fabulous young’ terdiri dari sebuah possessive (my) dan dua adjectives (fabulous dan young).

Dan dalam ‘her small tidy room’ terdiri dari sebuah possessive (her) dan dua adjectives (small dan tidy).
