Adjectives Word Order – English Grammar Lesson

In this English Grammar Lesson, we look at the correct order of adjectives before a noun.
We use the most common word order:
Opinion – Size – Age – Shape – Color – Origin – Material – Purpose

This is also known by the mnemonic OSASCOMP.

We explain the different categories of adjectives and give examples of each.
There is also an example demonstrated with a cartoon and highlighting why the adjectives appear in the order they do.

We also look at the bonus adjective categories of Number and Condition, again with examples.

This lesson aligns with: CCSS.ELA-Literacy.L.4.1d
English Language Arts Standards – Language – Grade 4 – 1d
Order adjectives within sentences according to conventional patterns (e.g., a small red bag rather than a red small bag).
