information about nouns :


We often want to give more information about

 nouns , One way to do this is to use an 

adjective

• a fat dog
• a rich tourist
• a beautiful house
• an American car

We can also give more information after the 

noun. We can do this by using a prepositional 

phrase:

Example :

• tourists from America
• people with lots of money
• the children in the school 

 We can also give more information about 

nouns by using a participle clause:

noun participle clause 

Example :

people living in the country

the man sitting in the park

magazines lying on the floor 

These noun phrases can be used as the 

subject or object of a sentence in the same 

way as single word nouns: 

subject verb phrase 

Example : 

John went to the beach.

Tourists from America love visiting old European

 cities.
