24.1 Adjectives - an introduction


Adjectives
  a rose
  is not the same as
  a red rose

English adjectives are invariables, which means that they do not change with the number of the noun, which is described by the adjective.

Adjectives are invariable
  a red rose <=> many red roses
   
  a black telephone <=> many black telephones

Well, there is a difference in the German version! German adjectives change with the number of the noun that is described. Not only this, they also change with the gender. And now since all good things are three (a German proverb) they also change in the declension! The declension of German verbs is unfortunately something very challenging. In the following we are going to explain the rules for the declension of the German adjectives.
