Sometimes good can be beautiful, great, or happy!
A modifier gives a description about a word or phrase, such as how green describes grass in the phrase “green grass.” While single word modifiers are commonly adjectives or adverbs, nouns and verbs may also act as modifiers, as in “snow bank” or “swimming hole.” Modifiers may also be phrases or clauses, as in “the girl in the first row.” Students need to learn to recognize and use modifying words and phrases, since these add clarity and interest to writing.
