Coordinate Adjective

Pengertian Coordinate Adjective

Coordinate adjective adalah dua atau lebih adjective (kata sifat) yang menerangkan noun (kata benda) dibelakangnya (posisi adjective sebagai attributive) secara setara dan sendiri-sendiri.

Rangkaian adjective tersebut berada di dalam kategori yang sama, misalnya sama-sama berada dalam kategori ‘opinion‘: beautiful, clever, lazy, dan friendly.

Penggunaan Comma dan “and” pada Coordinate Adjective

Tidak seperti cumulative adjective, comma (,) atau coordinate conjunction “and” dapat digunakan diantara adjective tersebut dan  maknanya tetap make sense walaupun urutannya diubah. Perlu diingat jika sudah ada and maka comma tidak diperlukan.

Contoh Kalimat Coordinate Adjective:

coordinate adjective1. He is a polite, disciplined person.
(Dia adalah orang yang sopan dan disiplin.)

atau

  • He is a disciplined, polite person.
  • He is a disciplined and polite person.
  • He is a polite and disciplined person.

2. I would like to buy a safe, realible, fuel-efficient car.
(Saya ingin membeli sebuah mobil yang aman, handal, dan irit bahan bakar.)

atau

  • I would like to buy a safe, realible and fuel-efficient car.
  • I would like to buy a safe, fuel-efficient, reliable car.
  • I would like to buy a safe and realiable and fuel-efficient car.
  • I would like to buy a safe and fuel-efficient and reliable car.
  • etc.
