    Adjectives in a sentence

    I have a sentence:

    The red house is new.

    The red house = Subject
    is = The verb BE in the present tense (linking verb)
    new = adjective

    I think "The red house" can be also dissected into parts. Am I right?

    The = Definite article
    red = adjective
    house = noun

    Is it normal in Engish for a Subject to also contain an adjective? like red in this subject: "The red house" ?

    Re: Adjectives in a sentence

    It's perfectly normal.

    Is there any reason you think it might not be?
