Welcome to 15mins.today, the home of English Shadowing, I am your host Gavin, and this is InTense Episode 57. Well, hooray guys! We are on the last one of the adjectives number 5, so we have covered four other ones in the previous episodes and today we're doing the fifth one.
They are called indefinite articles and what they are, they are adjectives that don't specify the specific amount of something, and I will give you some examples: all, each, more, several, another, either, most, some, any, few, neither, both, many, other, so there is a good list of indefinite adjectives, again, I will reiterate, as long as you know that these words are adjectives, it does not matter if you know they are indefinite adjectives, unless you really care about that. But most people would just be satisfied to know that these are adjectives. So, when I look at a sentence and I have to pull it apart for grammar, as long as I know it's an adjective, that's fine. That's what I learned at school, nobody ever asked me what adjective it was. What kind of adjective? I never learned this at school in basic grammar. As long as you know it is an adjective, you will be fine most of the time. But some people like to know things, so here you go. So, let's look at some examples.
