Description explains how someone or something looks or feels. Here are some examples. The descriptive words are bolded.
No description: John is sitting on a bench.
Description: John is sitting on the new metal bench.
No description: A bird flew above us.
Description: A huge, sleek, black bird flew above us.
By using description, you have more control over how people understand you. Descriptive words for people, places, things, or ideas are called adjectives.
