  1. ADJECTIVES

  2. ADJECTIVES • Describe a noun or pronoun • Most feminine adjectives end in -a. • Most masculine adjectives end in -o. • Adjectives that do not end in -a or -o use the same form for both masculine and feminine EXCEPT • Adjectives ending in -án / -ón are made feminineby adding -a and dropping the accent. • Adjectives ending in -dor are made feminine by adding -a. encantador / encantadora • Adjectives of nationality are made feminine by adding -a (and dropping the accent if there is one). aleman / alemana

  3. DESCRIPTIVE ADJECTIVES • Agree in gender and number with the noun or pronoun they modify. • Usually follow the noun. (a few common adjectives precede the noun. Drop the -o from the masculine singular form. - buen(o), primer(o), algún • La casa blanca • El libro interesante

  4. Adjectives that are placed in front of the noun • Adjectives of quantity (mucho, poco, bastante, suficiente, alguno) (alguna libertad - algún dinero) • Apocopated adjectives (adjectives that are cut short in specific circumstances) (bueno, malo, primero, segundo, tercero, etc, uno, alguno) (EL buen chico - La buena chica)

  5. GRANDE • Is apocopated (cut short) in front of any singular noun • Before the noun it means great • After the noun it means large • El gran oportunidad - the great opportunity • La ciudad grande - the large city

  6. After a Verb • In a sentence with a linking verb like SER or ESTAR, an adjective can be used after the verb to describe a noun before the verb. • In these sentences the adjective will not be shortened (apocopated) even if the noun is singular and masculine because the adjective is not in front of the noun. • Mario es malo. • Mario es un mal chico. • Julia es buena. • Julia es una buena chica.

  7. REMEMBER ----- you are given the masculine singular form of the adjective in the dictionary, word lists, etc. It is up to you to determine and use the correct form!
