What are Proper Adjectives?

An adjective is a word that defines or modifies a noun. Therefore a proper adjective would be a word that must be capitalized and modifies a noun. Look at the sentence ‘The tourist dropped his camera on the way to the airplane’. We can add a couple of proper adjectives to help define the tourist and the camera. The sentence would then read ‘The Japanese tourist dropped his Kodak camera on the way to the airplane’.
