Adjectives make a better text, don't they?

Abstract [en]

This is a study about what is considered to be a good text and if an element like many adjectives would have an impact on that fact. In order to find this out texts have been handed out to two teachers who were asked to grade them and also comment on why they had given the texts that particular grade. The aim of this study was to see if a text with many adjectives would be considered to be better than a text with few adjectives. The conclusion of this study is that if two texts are equally as good in every other area, when it comes to writing, the text with more adjectives would be considered to be better. It would then contain more depth and life. If however the text with most adjectives were full of spelling mistakes, grammatical errors and so on the amount of adjectives would not matter. Language correctness and fluency is considered to be more important than denseness of adjectives.
