Words that describe things.

Some words in this story describe how something feels or looks.

There are ‘majestic trams’, which makes me think of something very graceful and important.

There are ‘silent trolley buses’, which suggest to me that you would not hear these buses, so be careful crossing the road!

There is also the man ‘shouting excitedly’ – what do you think this means?
