Countries, Their Adjectives and Persons
Learning about different countries, their adjectives and persons is an important element in vocabulary. It improves one’s grammatical skills as well. This is because, the learner is very well able to decipher that he/ she needs to use nouns when referring to just the name of a country or a nation, and use adjectives when referring to the whole population of a country.
When one refers to a country, he/ she uses the name of the country, a singular noun that is used for a person from the country, and an adjective. Generally, the name of a national language is the same as the national adjective. In this case, the words are nouns and may be modified by adjectives. For instance, James comes from Germany. He is a German. His nationality is German. He speaks German.
