Definition:Spanish adejectives agree in gender and number with the noun it modifies. Usually adjectives come in masculine and feminine types and reflect the gender of the noun they describe. Normally masculine adjectives end in vowel o and feminine adjectives end in vowel a.

  • a fat cat. = un gato gordo.
  • My niece is playful. = Mi sobrina es juguetona.
  • I feel lonely. = Me siento solo.
  • I feel lonely. = Me siento sola.

If a noun is plural then the adjective is also plural, an s is added to the end.

  • the handsome boy = el niño bonito
  • the handsome boys = los niños bonitos
  • the honest girl = la niña honesta
  • the honest girls = las niñas honestas
