If you feel like you`ve mastered Spanish adjective correspondence and are doing something more demanding, try creating a few more complex sentences with the structures listed below. Adjectives can come before or after nouns, or they can be used with verbs such as ser (“to be”) to describe nouns. But (with the exception of immutable adjectives), they always correspond to the nouns they describe both in number and sex. The adjectives of nationality that end in -o, z.B. chino, argentino follow the same patterns as in the table below. Some adjectives of nationality end in a consonance, for example.B. galés, español and alemán and follow a slightly different pattern: there are some adjectives known as immutable adjectives that do not change in their form. Most of them are either unusual colors or words of foreign origin. An example is the web as in the página web (the website) and las páginas web (the websites). Sometimes a noun can be used as an immutable adjective, but this practice is much rarer in Spanish than in English.
Spanish students will rarely feel the need to use immutable adjectives, but be aware that they exist so you don`t get confused when you see them. We begin this lesson with a video that explains the basic rules for using Spanish adjectives. The person in the video only speaks Spanish, but you can also enable the subtitles (cc) below to translate into English or check the script. This video contains some examples and notes that will be very useful to learn more about how Spanish adjectives work in the language. Spanish singular adjectives always end in -z, -r, l, -e or -o/-a. By far the most common Spanish adjective is the variety -o/-a. It ends in its masculine form on -o and in its feminine form on -a. In Spanish, adjectives must correspond to the noun (or pronoun) they describe by gender and number. This means that if the subject describing an adjective is feminine, the adjective must be feminine, and if the same noun is plural, the adjective will be feminine AND plural.
Most adjectives that end on a consonant do not change by gender, but change for the number, just like adjectives that end on -e. Note how the endings of nouns and these adjectives are similar. An explanation of how to use adjectives and correspondences in Spanish nouns that end in [-o] or [-a]: these adjectives change the endings according to number and gender! The noun-adjective agreement is one of the most fundamental aspects of Spanish grammar: adjectives must correspond to the nouns on which they refer both in number and sex. Exception: for adjectives that end in z in the singular, change z to c before adding pluralistic rounding. Many common adjectives end in -o. These adjectives have four forms. The following words all mean “great”: possessive forms such as mío (mine) and tuyo (yours) also act as Spanish adjectives. However, the difference lies in the fact that possessive in ustic only come after verbs in full sentences (although there are exceptions). If this happens, the possessive must have the same ending as the name. Some examples of the use of possessive as adjectives: As its name suggests, descriptive adjectives describe a certain quality of a noun….
