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).

  1. Thank you! You're one (forgot number first) fantastic huge young long white (guessing) American flesh-and-bones English teacher!

  2. Hi.
    Why large is inside SIZE and long is inside SHAPE?

    Don't large and long have the same meaning?

    What would be the difference?


  3. Thank you for the class! Very helpfull. I have a question. What is the correct way to say: wooden chair or wood chair?
