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.
