Describing Words

Concept: Words for Colour & Texture

Definition

Adjectives are words that describe the characteristics, qualities, and numbers of a noun or a pronoun.

Words for Colour

One of the best ways to express the things that we see is with the help of colours. Colours reflect the outer appearance of an object. Now, to refer to the colour of a particular thing, we use colour for words. Words used for the colour are used to discuss the colour of the noun in the sentence.

Examples :

Boy

In the first example, the word ‘red’ describes the colour of the ball. In the second example, the word ‘pink’ describes the colour of the dress.

Words for texture

Words relating to texture refer to the feeling when a particular object is touched. To describe that feeling, we use texture words. Texture words are used to the description about the appearance or feel of a particular noun.

Examples :

Boy

In the first example, the adjective ‘bumpy’ describes the texture of the road.

In the second example, the adjective ‘smooth’ describes the texture of the hair.

Let us take a look at some of the most common textures and colour words.

Common Mistake

Don’t confuse between the base word and the texture word, as not all base words are texture words.

Examples :

Base Word Texture Word
Rock Rocky
Rubber Rubbery
