More rules

More rules

  • Adjectives that end in –eonly show number, not gender.

  • This is why the endings of the adjectives don’t always match the endings of the nouns.


Rules cont

Rules (cont.)

  • Adjectives usually follow the noun.

  • For example,

  • Il bambinobello

  • However, there are several adjectives that always come before the noun and omit the definite article.


For example

For example:

  • moltocaffè

  • pococaffè

  • Questo(this) indicates people or things that are near you.

  • Also, quest’ is commonly used before singular nouns that begin with a vowel.

  • Quest’amicaQuest’esame


Rules cont 2

Rules (Cont. 2)

  • Use quello(that) for items that are far away.

  • Quello follows the pattern of definite article learned in the previous chapter.
