Modifiers

A modifier can be an adjective, an adverb, or a phrase or clause acting as an adjective or adverb. In every case, the basic principle is the same: the modifier adds information to another element in the sentence.

In this module, you will begin by working with single-word modifiers—adjectives and adverbs—but the information here will also apply to phrases and clauses that act as modifiers.
