Grammar & Punctuation – adjective phrase – English editing.

An adjective phrase is a group of words built up round an adjective. There are two main ways in which this is done.
 An ADVERB is placed in front of the adjective:
‘He’s a very remarkable man, ‘said Alison.
The adverb MODIFIES the adjective by changing its meaning. Very is the commonest adverb used in this way. Others are:
rather quite fairly
You can have more than one adverb in front of the adjective. For example:
I’m really rather busy at the moment.
 Sometimes words are placed after the adjective to modify it in a similar way:
slow enough
intrigued by the project
