First, let's make sure you understand what an adjective is. Adjectives are words that modify nouns. Here are some examples in English.
The adjective is the word that appears in italics. Notice that the adjective modifies the noun that comes after it, giving you some added details about the noun. Notice, too, that in English, adjectives precede the nouns they modify.
Adjectives in Hebrew perform the same task that they do in English, but there are some differences of style.
The adjective comes after the noun it modifies.
The adjective matches the noun it modifies in gender. That is, if the noun is masculine, then it takes a masculine adjective; if the noun is feminine, then the adjective must also be feminine.
The adjective matches the noun it modifies in definiteness. That is, if the noun takes the definite article, then the adjective must also take the definite article.
