WHAT ARE NOUNS?
An Adjective is a describing word and tells about a Person, a Place , an animal and a thing.
Some tips on recognising an adjective :
1.Hunt for the common English prefixes and suffixes – sets of letters that commonly occur at the beginning or end of a word.
Common Prefix – ‘a’,’de’,’di’,’per’,’un’,’in’,’up’ etc
Common Suffix – ‘ s’,’en’,’ed’,’ing etc
2. Once you identify a potential suffix you can make with your letters, remove those letters from the pile and see what you can construct with the remaining letters. Eliminating even a few of the letters by grouping them into a prefix or suffix makes it a lot easier to unscramble the word by reducing the number of possible solutions.
