The Exciting World of Participial Adjectives

Adjectives are words that describe or modify another person or thing in the sentence. If a group of words containing a subject and verb acts as an adjective, it is called an Adjective Clause. My sister, who is much older than I am , is an engineer. If an adjective clause is stripped of its subject and verb, the resulting modifier becomes an Adjective Phrase : He is the man who is keeping my family in the poorhouse. Let your broad-shouldered verbs and nouns do the hard work of description. Be particularly cautious in your use of adjectives that don't have much to say in the first place: interesting, beautiful, lovely, exciting.

  1. Q: Why does everyone say “excited for” instead of “excited about”? I started hearing this from my girls and now everybody—adults.

  2. On the pattern of “I am happy for you,” one could say “I'm excited for you.” Otherwise, standard usage calls for excited about, as in these examples in which I adhere to the rules of grammar when they make sense to me, and they normally do.

  3. The easiest way to express excitement in writing is with one or more exclamation points.
