Fall adjectives list


During the months of September, October, and November the weather begins to cool down in the northern hemisphere, and the trees start changing colors, from green to yellow and red leaves. 

People also start dressing differently, wearing long pants, sweaters, and even boots. 

In the United States, people celebrate an important and unique holiday: Thanksgiving. Since 1941, this Holiday has been celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November. It commemorates the pilgrims' successful harvest in 1621, thanks to the natives' helping hand. It is one of my favorite holidays, and it reminds us to be grateful for the good people in our lives.

In the United States, fall also is related to discounted prices at stores and football. People make apple pies, and kids love playing outside in the milder weather. 

Overall, fall is so much fun! And we can use different words to describe what happens during this season. Such words are called adjectives.

Adjectives are a part of English speech. We use adjectives to describe how (noun) person, place, or thing is. 

If you go to the park and look at the trees (noun), what words can you describe them? A simple form to remember them is by recalling our five senses; you can use your sight, touch, smell, taste, and hearing. Most likely, you will tell the appearance (crooked), texture (rough), size (tall), and leaves color (yellow). 

Here is a list of some adjectives used to describe fall. These are nouns modifiers and have a direct effect on the noun.
