Definition:

A phrase with an adjective as a head. [Crystal 2003: 11] Adjective phrases may contain complements following the head, and modifiers in either pre-head or post-head position, but for the most part, complements in adjective phrase structure are optional elements: they qualify as complements by virtue of being licensed by the head rather than being obligatory. [Huddleston and Pullum 2002: 22-23, 57, 542]
