Modifiers are single words or groups of words that describe or provide more detail about another word, be it subjects, verbs, objects, complements or other modifiers. Modifying words are mostly adjectives and adverbs. Adjectives modify nouns and pronouns, and adverbs modify adjectives, verbs and other adverbs. A noun too can be used as a modifier of another noun.
