    In this chapter you will learn about the Dutch adjectives. What are adjectives and how do you use them in Dutch? The subchapters give you an overview of the different adjectives and their endings and the Dutch comparatives.   

    Definition and usage of Dutch adjectives 

    The Dutch adjectives tells you something about the noun. The adjective describes a characteristic of the noun. That is why the adjective is usually placed before of the noun

    Situation Example Translation
    Describes a characteristic of the noun. 
    • Het groene huis. 
    • Het dikke boek. 
    • The green house. 
    • The thick book. 

    The use of adverbial sense 

    When adverbs are placed before the adjectives these are used in an adverbial sense. These words describe the adjective instead of the noun. These adverbs do not get an extra '-e' at the end

    Example: 

    • Het bijzondere boek. (The remarkable book.) 
    • Het bijzonder goede boek. (The extremely good book.)
