The word "descriptive" refers to statements that describe (provideinformation in the form, appearance, or attributes of a person,place, or thing). It can also be used to refer to a story or presentation thatcontains many details about the setting or the characters. Descriptive comes from the word that describes it. This means that youexplain something in a very detailed way. For example, I lookoutside: I can see the sun shining on the white house, birds flyinghigh and singing their songs and the fresh green grass swaying in thewind. So if someone says do a descriptive essay using a lot of verbs andadjectives to make it easier to "see" in the mind.
