the adjective

The adjective, the third of the eight parts of speech, modifies (qualifies or
limits the meaning of) a noun or pronoun. An adjective can answer any one
of these questions: What kind? Which one? How many? or How much?

In addition to regular adjectives such as tall, muscular, beautiful, and intell-
igent, there are two specific types of adjectives—the proper adjective and the
compound adjective.

➲ A proper adjective is formed from a proper noun. Examples of proper
adjectives include French onion soup, the Belgian detective, Orwellian
philosophy, and the Kenyan landscape.

➲ A compound adjective is composed of two or more words. Examples include part-time referee, eight-foot tree, and fifteen-year-old musician.

➲ Note: Do not hyphenate an adjective preceding an adverb that ends in -ly. Some of these instances are smartly dressed politician and nicely groomed model.

    Aethusa cynapium
    Fool’s parsley.

    Key Uses:
  • Anxiety with associated diarrhea
  • Confused state of mind with scattered thoughts
  • Marked dullness and sluggish mental state
  • Milk intolerance in children

    Origin : Found throughout Europe.

    Background : The poison from this plant is thought to produce marked dullness and stupor, hence its common name of fool’s parsley.

    Preparation : The whole flowering plant, with the root and unripe fruits, is chopped and macerated in alcohol.

    Remedy Profile : People who respond best to Aethusa are often characterized by poor concentration and a tendency to be easily distracted. They are generally reserved, alienated, reclusive, and irritable.
    Key symptoms associated with Aethusa include a confused state of mind with scattered thoughts; those affected may talk to themselves and behave foolishly. Other typical symptoms can include marked dullness and a sluggish mental state, possibly linked with an inability to study. These symptoms may be accompanied by prostration with a sense of staleness, or anxiety with associated nervous diarrhea.
    Aethusa is also appropriate for children with milk intolerance, notably babies who are prone to sudden vomiting after feeding, and who may have diarrhea. Lack of nutrition may set up a cycle of hunger, frequent feeding, and subsequent violent vomiting. This may result in a state of extreme exhaustion and collapse, causing the baby’s face to appear drawn, agonized, and aged. It may also seem as though the baby’s whole body has enlarged, particularly in the heart area.

    Symptoms Better : For open air; for walking; for company and conversation; for rest.

    Symptoms Worse : For warmth and hot weather; between 3 a.m. and 4 a.m.; for overexertion; for eating frequently; for milk.
