Connu Adjective Agreement

The French use special forms of beautiful (bel), new (new) and old (old) in front of masculine nouns beginning with a vowel or vocal sound. However, if the adjective follows the noun, the regular masculine form is used: there are cases when these adjectives go according to the noun: this very day, last week. But in general, they can be considered exceptions or defined expressions. In a more formal analysis, at least some of them would be classified as quantifiers and not as adjectives (and this dictates that they come before the noun). We will not worry about that distinction here. The irregular adjectives presented in Table 7 have no rules and must be memorized. Some adjectives with an “emphatic” or “superlative” meaning tend to walk in front of the noun. If we think that the default place for an adjective is according to the noun, but it may be before the name of the accent, then we could say that these adjectives tend to land in front of the noun “by chance”. The examples are as follows: some male singularadjectives form the feminine by doubling the final consonant before the ending. See Table 6. The following adjectives have developed informal meanings that deviate from their “fundamental” meaning.

The informal meaning tends to apply only if the adjective comes according to the noun: most adjectives add to the masculine singular form e to obtain the feminine singular. Be careful if you see masculine adjectives that end on -e, -them, -f and -er, because for these, don`t just add e. There are only a handful of cases where we could argue that we have an adjective according to the noun1: Nuance: Some verbs to be can be used with direct objects, in this case they are conjugated to have (see abatement). If conjugated with have, these verbs conform to the compliance rule for Have verbs (below). We have said that adjectives that usually follow the noun can stand in front of the accent name. In fact, there are certain types of adjectives that are usually never used before the noun. These are: The following adjectives are usually in front of the noun. Note that these are usually very common adjectives with fundamental meanings: Make the feminine singular of masculine singularadjectives that end on f by changing -f in – ve. See Table 4.

The following adjectives have a “functional” purpose rather than a “descriptive” and also go before the noun: 1. Technical note: We will talk a lot about the adjective that precedes or follows the noun. But there is another point of view, namely that what we see coming as an adjective according to the noun is actually the noun that comes before the adjective. It sounds strange, but there are a few theories of syntax where the order of the words we hear is derived from an underlying surface order, so the distinction between “from which is derived” has real meaning. . . .
