Já falei de adjetivos várias vezes no blog, mas esses são novinhos e têm um grande número de combinações..são os adjetivos compostos!
Adjectives are words used to describe a person, place, things, a situation and so on. It is always used before the noun or after the verb to be.
EX: That man is tall / That is a tall man
But today we are gonna see the compound adjectives, created with two or more words. They can be combined with nouns, verbs, adverbs and, of course, adjectives. Let’s see some of them!
My mom gave me a hand-made present.
( It means that her mother made the present herself)
She is beautiful and green-eyed, but she is also extremely bad-tempered!
(Green-eyed means the woman’s eyes are green and ‘bad-tempered’ means she has a bad mood)
My father isn’t old, he is only 40 years old. I’d say he is a middle-aged guy. Different from my cousin, that is a two-year-old baby.
(‘middle-aged’ means that the father is in his middle age and ‘two-year-old’ means that the baby is 2 years old.)

(The sentence means that the cut was very deep and it went further into the skin.)
