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.
- When adjectives follow the form given below, they are called Block 1. (About 50% of Latin nouns are block 1.)
- Adjectives are listed in the dictionary in their singular, subject form: bonus, bona, bonum. If your dictionary doesn't list all 3 forms, get a new dictionary.
|Block 1 Adjective
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.
