Adjectivul - engleza

1. Forma adjectivului

Adjectivele sunt invariabile. Ele nu isi schimba forma in functie de gen sau numar.
Ex.: A hot potato, some hot potatoes.

Pentru a sublinia sau accentua sensul unui adjectiv se pot folosi very, really
Ex.: A very hot potato, some really hot potatoes.

2. Pozitia adjectivului

  • De obicei adjectivul se aseaza in fata substantivului determinat
    Ex.: A good movie.
  • Dupa verbe auxiliare ca to be, to become, to seem(a parea), to look, to taste, to appear, to feel, to keep, to make, to smell, to sound, to turn, etc:
    Ex.: The movie is good.
       You seem upset(tulburat).
       This cheese tastes different.
    (aceasta branza are gust diferit)
  • Dupa substantiv in expresii fixe:
    Ex.: the Princess Royal, the President elect, the court martial
  • Cateva adjective, ca de exemplu chief (sef), main(esential; principal), poor(nefericit; sarac) (=unfortunate)(nenorocos, nefericit) stau numai in fata substantivului determinat:
    Ex.: This is the main purpose (obiectiv, scop) of the meeting.
