Lesson 7: Block 1 Adjectives

Using adjectives to modify nouns

Instructions: spend no more than 2-3 minutes memorizing the endings listed for using Latin adjectives to modify either subjects and objects.

Block 1 Adjective
SingularPlural
MasculineFeminineNeuterMasculineFeminineNeuter
Subject:bonusbonabonumbonibonaebona
Object:bonumbonambonumbonosbonasbona
Subject:-us-a-um-i-ae-a
Object:-um-am-um-os-as-a

N.B.

  • bonus,-a,-um means good
  • The endings of Block 1 Adjectives are identical to those we learned for Block 1 Nouns
  • This doesn't mean that the adjectives ending will always be identical to the noun it modifies, for the adjective must agree with the gender of the noun, as seen in the next lesson.

    Go here for a list of some examples of Block 1 Adjectives you will be learning. Then go to Lesson 8.
