Indefinite Adjectives‏‎ in English Grammar

As the word suggests (indefinite = unspecified, unknown, indeterminate, undefined) Indefinite Adjectives give general information about the noun they refer to.

Some common indefinite adjectives are:

  • All
  • Any
  • Each
  • Every
  • Few
  • Many
  • Some

Though indefinite pronouns and indefinite adjectives look the same they are used differently in a sentence.

Whilst an indefinite pronoun replaces a noun, an indefinite adjective is placed in front of a noun or pronoun to modify it.

We are meeting some old school friends tonight.

Not many people turned up at the opening of the exhibition.

The dog barks every time a car passes by!
