Adjectives are words that qualify nouns. They express a particular quality of the noun, such as colour (geel, rood, zwart) or dimensions (groot, lang, klein). Adjectives can also express more abstract qualities. For example: gezellig , interessant or aardig. Most past participles of verbs can also be used as adjectives: gebakken (‘fried’) or gesloten (= dicht, ‘closed’).
Adjectives can occur in two places:
- after the noun they qualify (so-called predicative adjectives)
- before the noun they qualify (a.k.a. attributive adjectives)
The comparative and superlative are special forms of adjectives.
