    The adjectives are words that define a noun. The adjectives in Bulgarian can change according to the gender and number of the noun they define. This is the so called "agreement" of noun and adjectives.

    1. Masculine, feminine and neuter gender

    Usually the masculine adjectives end on consonant; feminine - on "A" and neuter - on "O". Actually, the feminine and neuter adjectives are formed by adding "-A" or "-O" to the masculine ones.

     m.   - consonant   хубав ресторант 
    f.   + a хубава къща
    n.   + o хубаво село
