Adjective Agreements In Spanish

So we have a masculine, pluralistic name. How would you add the adjective feo (ugly) to this sentence? The „normal“ form of adjectives, the form you will find in dictionaries is singular and masculine. To make the plural adjective, follow one of these steps which are considered to be the same as for the production of noun plural: possessive forms like meo (mine) and Tuyo (your) also function as Spanish adjectives. However, the difference is that possessive ususally only comes in verbs in complete clauses (although there are exceptions). If this happens, the owner must have the same purpose as the name. Some examples of possessives used as adjectives: Spanish adjectives are usually listed in dictionaries in their male singular form, so it is important to know how to match these singular male adjectives with the name to be described. Most adjectives end in o, e or a consonant in their unique male forms. Below are the rules for assigning these adjectives to their respective nouns in sex and numbers. The noun adjective agreement is one of the most fundamental aspects of Spanish grammar: adjectives must correspond to the noun to which they refer in both numbers and sex. Now try it for yourself. The following sentences contain adjectives only in the standard form (male, singular). The adjective of each sentence has been made bold to make things easier.

It`s up to you to decide if they`re correct, and if they`re not, correct them. The adjectives of nationality that end in -o, z.B. Chino, Argentino follow the same patterns as in the table above. Some adjectives of nationality end in a consonant, z.B. galloned, espaérol and alemén, and they follow a slightly different pattern: they must ensure that the adjective is masculine and plural. The default format already ends with -o, so we know it`s masculine. And to make it pluralistic, just add a -s. Finally, remember that the adjective should come after the Nostunon.

Some Spanish adjectives do not change the form of the masculine/female and singular/plural. There are some adjectives that are known as variable adjectives that do not change in shape. Most of them are either unusual colors or words of foreign origin. An example is web ace in the web pegina (the website) and read web peginas (web pages). Sometimes a name can be used as an immutable adjective, but this practice is much less common in Spanish than in English. Being a Spanish student will rarely have the need to use immutable adjectives, but you should be aware that they exist so that they don`t confuse you when you see them. You may be wondering how an adjective can be masculine, feminine or plural. The key is that Spanish adjectives have no intrinsic sex or plurality, as nouns do.
