Transcript of Adjectival Agreement

Adjectival Agreement When the noun is masculine the adjective ending changes by the rule of adding nothing to the end of it
e.g. Un livre rouge
or Un livre vert Masculine Rule When the noun is feminine an 'e' must be added to the end of the adjective
e.g. Une table verte
or Un table Rouge Feminine Rule DO NOT TRY TO CONFUSE THE METHODS OF THE WAY TO CHANGE AN ADJECTIVE WITH THE WAY TO CHANGE A VERB






**muadh** ! A presentation by Sami El-Kamha Thank you for watching Note how if the adjective already ends in 'e' nothing changes to it If the adjective already ends in 'e' leave it as it is just do not confuse it to be a feminine noun What about plural nouns? Much like the singular rule nothing is added to the adjective but if the noun it refers to is plural then an 's' is added to the end of it
e.g. Des livre verts
or des livres rouges Masculine Plural Again if the adjective ending already ends in 'e' then leave it as it is and add the 's' so it would end in 'es' With female nouns the adjective very simply changes to having an 'e' on the end of it and with plural it is 'es' added on
e.g. Des tables Vertes
or Des tables rouges Feminine Plural If the adjective already ends in 'e' dont try anything you shouldnt, leave the 'e' and regard it as the 'e' that you are going to add on Acceptions: Some Adjectives have a pattern of their own

Her previous house - An old house
Consonant Rule when changing adjectives to its feminine form adjectives ending in a consonant should have that consonant doubled and have an 'e' added to the end of it This rule applys to adjectives ending in:
-el -il -as -et -en e.g. Naturel > Naturelle
Gras > Grasse
