It is an adjective?
Is it just a regular word?
Is it long? short? Hard to pronounce? Simple?
Rude? Annoying? Revealing? Personal?

The physical attribute it describes, is it:
the head? arm(s)? leg(s)? hand(s)? finger(s)?
torso? temple? hair? eye(s)? facial features? skin?
Does it describe what it covers?
