Describe male and female stuff.

 

  What are adjectives?

Adjectives describe nouns.

Example:
Happy girl
Happy = adjective.

 

Adjectives, in Arabic, are masculine, feminine, or plural depending on the noun they modify.

If the noun is masculine the adjective is masculine.

If the noun is feminine the adjective is feminine.

If the noun is plural the adjective is plural.
 

Adjectives copy the gender of the noun.


Think of adjectives as bipolar or sheep copying the gender of noun they modify.
 

Nouns, however, are either masculine OR/ feminine and can never change gender.
 

An adjective is masculine if it ends in a consonant.

An adjective is feminine if it ends in an… “a” sound.

The "a" ending is called the ti marbuuta.

 

English, does not have gender agreement.
