Lesson 13: ADJECTIVES – Aggettivi (part II)

Welcome to part II of Lesson 13! So, today’s post will be on determining adjectives 🙂
There are four types of adjective: possessive, dimostrative, numeral and indefinite.
1-possessivo / possessive:
Eng / Masc.Sing/ Fem.Sing/ Masc.Plu/ Fem.Plu.
my =    mio /              mia         / miei       / mie
your =  tuo /               tua         / tuoi         / tue
his-her = suo   /          sua        / suoi        / sue
our =    nostro /          nostra     / nostri     / nostre
your =  vostro /          vostra     / vostri     / vostre
their =  loro /              loro        / loro         / loro
2-dimostrativo / dimostrative: (I’m writing only the most used)
Eng / Masc.Sing / Fem.Sing                       Eng / Masc.Plu / Fem.Plu.
this = questo / questa                              these = questi    / queste
that = quello (quel)  / quella                     those = quelli (quegli, quei)  / quelle
3-numerali (e ordinali) / numeral and ordinal (numbers) –> primo, secondo, terzo, ecc. First, second, third, etc. (I’ll explain them in another post!)
4-indefiniti / indefinite:
qualità (quality) qualunque
quantità (quantity) qualche
poco, troppo, molto
alquanto, parecchio, tutto

The indefinite adjectives written in bold are not often used.

This was a heavy grammar post! Next one will be easier and lighter 😀 Have a nice day!
